Our Mission: a message from the board of directors


Americans Against Language Barriers has the mission of eliminating linguistic barriers to healthcare access, ensuring that all patients with limited English proficiency have access to the language services they need. 

From connecting volunteer interpreters to volunteer-run free clinics, to meeting with legislators to advocate for those with limited English proficiency, Americans Against Language Barriers is working to improve the quality of life of those who may not be able to speak for themselves. We visualize a world in which interpretation and translation services are proactively made accessible to anyone that needs them.
