Vice-Chair Masterson: The Power of Language Access

Jul 07, 2016

Usually when I write a blog I share a story from the road or some observations from around election land along with some useful resources that EAC has put together about the topic. Today I am choosing to let others speak for me. Last month the EAC held a language summit to address issues regarding language access. It was a fantastic day focused on best practices to better serve voters with language needs.

At the summit Lance Gough, Director of Elections for the City of Chicago and Mee Moua from Asian Americans Advancing Justice (AAAJ) gave summit talks. Their words do a far better job summing up the day and importance of that work than I ever could. So I share them with you today, I hope you enjoy them:
