DC Websites Speak Your Language

DC Government Speaks Your Language Ad“The new language-specific agency webpages are a first step to opening the door to greater access and enhanced online service provision through a virtual visit to an agency. This collaborative effort began with agencies that have much contact with the public, but we plan to continue expanding the range of agencies, service information, and languages available over the next couple of years.”

- Winta Teferi, Director of the Language Access Program

Over 30 government agencies now have service information available online in Amharic, Chinese, French, Korean, Spanish and Vietnamese because of a yearlong effort by the Office of Human Rights in partnership with the Office of the Chief Technology Officer. To access the information, look for the "Language Support" section on agency websites and select the preferred language. The launched pages are the first phase in a larger effort to provide more agency content and materials for those who are limited or non-English proficient. 

Campaign Advertisements & Flyers

To promote the new language-specific webpages, OHR placed advertisements in ethnic newspapers and posted them in community centers. To post the poster in your agency, organization, or community center, click the appropriate language below to download the PDF.
