Access Denied: The Unfulfilled Promise of the DC Language Access Act is a comprehensive report reflecting the experiences of DC's Limited- and Non-English proficient (LEP/NEP) indidivuals in the eight years since the passage of the 2004 Language Access Act.
The report was written by student attorneys at the American University College of Law's Immigrant Justice Clinic, based on research conducted in collaboration with other members of the DC Language Access Coalition. The report is based on interviews and surveys with over 300 LEP/NEP community members, which were collected by other members of the DC Language Access Coalition.
Special thanks to supervising professor Jayesh Rathod, and the following student attorneys contributed to the report: Shaleen Brundsdale, Anusha Goossens, Gabby Gross, Jennifer Koduru, Adrian Odya-Weiss, Michael Ramirez, and Shannon Ziegler.
