Legal Services State Support and Pro Bono Net created a LEP (Limited English Proficiency) Complaint Resource Center website to educate advocates about language access laws and assist them in filing online Title VI Complaints. This project was funded by a Flom Incubator Grant (www.skaddenfellowships.org/flom-incubator-grants).
The website requires registration and is for advocate use only. The complaint form can be found under the "File a Complaint" tab.
Please share this resource with your advocates doing Title VI work.
