Immigrant Advocates Want More Accountability For Language Access In Hawaii … Several proposed bills are aimed at helping immigrant and migrant communities succeed in Hawaii.

Advocates for Hawaii immigrants want more transparency in how well — or poorly — state agencies are following the state’s language access law.

A proposal for an annual compliance report is one of several measures that advocates for Hawaii’s non-English speaking community are pushing at the Legislature this session.

“This pandemic has caused us to reflect on where the gaps are and what the need is and we have to continue the momentum,” said Agnes Malate, who spoke Thursday on behalf of the FilCom Cares group during a virtual talk story event.
