We empower voices!

The Community Language Cooperative (CLC) provides interpretation services, focus groups, and inclusivity/diversity training to make community, academic, and governmental events more accessible for all. We help remove barriers and broaden opportunities for participation and community engagement by non-English speakers, and train organizations on implementation of inclusivity practices.
