We are very proud to share that Casey Payton who is the Supervising Attorney out of our St.Thomas office was one of the co-authors of the informative article highlighting Language Justice featured on the American Bar Association’s Disaster Legal Services website.

“Language justice is an evolving framework based on the notion of respecting every individual’s fundamental language rights—to be able to communicate, understand, and be understood in the language in which they prefer and feel most articulate and powerful.

Language justice is more important than ever during this pandemic as those who primarily use non-dominant languages have historically faced challenges in seeking access to basic amenities, legal remedies, and supportive services.”

Attorney Payton will be the moderator of the upcoming Language Justice During COVID-19 webinar on Wednesday, June 3rd at 1:00 p.m. Click here to read the full article here and to register for the webinar.

Congrats Casey!
