Language Access Toolkit: An Organizing and Advocacy Resource for Community-Based Youth Programs
Beyersdorf, Mark Ro
Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund
Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund (AALDEF) developed this language access toolkit to share the expertise and experiences of National Asian American Education Advocates Network (NAAEA) member organizations with other community organizations interested in developing language access campaigns. This toolkit includes an overview of federal and state language access laws, guidelines for developing language access campaigns, profiles of two successful language access campaigns, and sample materials used by the youth and advocates who developed those two campaigns. The hope is that these materials offer a starting point for Asian American community organizations fighting for their community's full and equitable access to the public education system. Appendices include: (1) Asian Immigrant Women Advocates (AIWA) Sample Advocacy Materials; (2) Vietnamese American Young Leaders Association of New Orleans (VAYLA) Sample Advocacy Materials; and (3) "Role Play Guessing Game" Workshop. [This toolkit was also produced by the National Asian American Education Advocates Network (NAAEA)]
