Georgia Team Attends National Language Access Conference

Teams from across the nation met for three days to discuss and learn about language access in the courts in Houston, TX.   On October 1-3, the National Summit on Language Access brought together national leaders in language access to train the state teams on issues such as language access plans, remote interpreting, developing resources, training, and technology considerations.
   A five-person team from Georgia was among the teams sent from 49 states, three territories, and the District of Columbia.  Justice Harold D. Melton, Supreme Court of Georgia; Judge Melodie Clayton, State Court of Cobb County; Ms. Marla S. Moore, AOC Director; Ms. Linda Smith, Program Manager, Language Access Programs; and Mr. Antonio DelCampo, Commission on Interpreters; rounded out the team from Georgia.
Justice Melton said of the summit, "We realized at the conference that we all shared common struggles to reach common goals of providing quality language access to the justice system.   More importantly, by sharing our struggles, we were able to come away with both a practical vision and practical steps towards seeing that vision fulfilled."
