Read our statement on New York City Council's recent signing of a language access policy that now includes 4 more languages: On Wednesday, the New York City Council voted unanimously to approve a new Language Access Policy, Introduction 1181-A. The new law nearly doubles the number of languages in which all city agencies are required to provide services from six to 10. The inclusion of Urdu, Arabic, and French among the added languages will cover some of the most vulnerable New Yorkers, including South Asian and African immigrants. Through our efforts with African Communities Together, The New York Immigration Coalition, Urban Justice Center, and other key partners, we are reminded yet again that a focused coalition can achieve big wins for our community. For the past several years, we have advocated for the inclusion of languages that reflect our communities’ growing diversity so that all immigrants can have access to essential services. Nearly 30 percent of the pan-Asian community lives below the poverty line, so it is crucial to create better access to city services that impact the day-to-day life of immigrants. We are grateful to Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito and the entire City Council for prioritizing our immigrant communities during this critical time and for their commitment to ensuring that newcomers have access to necessary information and programs.

In the past year, there has been a significant spike in hate crimes targeting Muslim Americans, immigrants, people of color, and the LGBTQ community, with hate activity remaining above pre-election levels. We are partnering with the Arab American Association of New York to provide this training to community members to help them be vigilant about their own safety as well as that of other community members who may be vulnerable to intimidation and harassment in public spaces based on their race/ethnicity, immigration status, or sexual orientation. Space is limited. RSVP now!
