The Civil Rights Division strives to provide accurate and effective communication with members of the public, regardless of their level of English proficiency. It is Division policy to take reasonable steps to overcome language barriers to Division programs or activities, at no cost to the limited English proficient (LEP) individual.
Please let us know if you have trouble understanding English or need help communicating with the Civil Rights Division. Ask for an interpreter or if translated material is available when you contact us. If you can, please tell us your language (or dialect).
For more information about how the Civil Rights Division plans to overcome language barriers and comply with Executive Order 13166, see the Civil Rights Division Language Access Plan or the Department of Justice Language Access Plan (plans are available in English only). We welcome public comment and suggestions that will help us overcome language barriers. If you would like to provide us feedback to the Civil Rights Division Language Access Plan or the Departmental Language Access Plan, please send an email to DOJLAWG@usdoj.gov. Feedback will help us establish better protocols and procedures as we continue to implement the Departmental Language Access Plan.
