Kern County Public Health Services, in collaboration with Building Healthy Communities-South Kern, California Rural Legal Assistance (CRLA) and Kern County Library, invite you to the Language Access Workshop. This workshop is a follow-up event to the Language Access Convening held on November 9, 2016. The workshop, like the convening, will focus on the Indigenous Mexican community living in Kern County. Indigenous communities from Mexico speak distinct languages that bear no linguistic similarity to English or Spanish.
At the convening, service providers will be able to:
- Identify current resources for providing language access to indigenous language speakers in Kern County;
- Identify potential long-term solutions for achieving more reliable and cost-effective language services to indigenous populations in the County; and,
- Discuss next steps toward achieving short and long-term solutions.

The workshop will be held May 11 at Bakersfield’s Beale Memorial Library, 701 Truxtun Ave. from 1:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
