DOJ makes key excerpts of Strategic Plan available in 5 languages

October 4, 2022

The mission and resources of the Department of Justice should be understood by all communities we serve including the approximately 25.6 million individuals with limited English proficiency (LEP). Yet language barriers often prevent many communities from understanding their rights, reporting crimes, or otherwise having full and equal access to the Department’s services and resources. The Department’s Equity Action Plan, released earlier this year, focused on improving engagement with stakeholders in underserved communities and disadvantaged groups and reducing language barriers especially for LEP individuals.

As a step toward that, today the Department is now releasing the strategic plan in Spanish and key excerpts in the other top languages spoken by the LEP general public in the United States: Chinese (simplified and traditional), Vietnamese, Korean, and Tagalog. The Department continues to prioritize actions to help ensure language access is not a barrier to LEP individuals participation in Department priorities including access to a plan that guides our efforts across the Department as we continue to fulfill our responsibilities to the American people.
