National Center on Law & Elder Rights logoThe National Center on Law & Elder Rights is hosting a free webinar entitled Serving Older Adults with Limited English Proficiency on July 10, 2024 from 2:00 PM-3:00 PM Eastern. 

Legal assistance, elder rights, and aging services professionals often work with older adults with limited English proficiency (LEP). At the intersection of their LEP status and older age, they often have unique legal needs and may face barriers to accessing services and supports, especially in a language they understand or prefer. Under Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, recipients of federal financial assistance cannot discriminate on the basis of national origin and must provide meaningful access to individuals with LEP. Legal assistance, aging services, and elder rights advocates should be well versed in these language access rights and how to utilize tools and strategies to help older adults with LEP access programs and services.

This training will cover:

  • Background information about older adults with LEP;
  • An overview of federal language access authorities most relevant for older adult programs and services, including Title VI, select caselaw, and other federal laws; and
  • Practical strategies for working with older adults with LEP, including tips on working with an interpreter, and more. 


  • Denny Chan, Managing Director for Equity Advocacy, Justice in Aging
  • Chi-Ser Tran, Supervising Attorney, SSI Unit and Language Access Project, Community Legal Services of Philadelphia

. If you would like to request ASL interpretation or have other accessibility related questions, please email at least one week in advance.
