The law requires the provision of bilingual election resources for minorities who do not speak English well. As a means of improving voter access, a new initiative by a charity linked to allies of President Biden is seeking to ensure that this requirement is implement. This article published by Politico is written by Sabrina Rodriguez. Here is an excerpt:
Building Back Together — in partnership with several progressive groups, Latino and Asian American and Pacific Islander leaders — will start what they call a “language justice committee” to educate local organizations to report language access violations to the Justice Department in cities and counties that aren’t complying with federal law.
The effort is designed to ensure that voters who speak limited English are granted bilingual resources as required by federal law.
The effort comes as Democrats have been unable to pass major federal voting rights legislation, an early priority for the Biden administration, amid a wave of Republican-led bills being advanced across the country that would restrict voting access.
