The Brookings Greater Washington Research Program along with several DC offices, held this event to kickoff the implementation of the District’s new Language Access Act. Mayor Anthony Williams addressed the forum, and a panel of practitioners from around the region discussed the implications of the new law. Also at this event, Brookings’ Audrey Singer and Jill H. Wilson released a new analysis of language use and English-speaking ability in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area entitled “Polyglot Washington: Language Needs and Abilities in the Nation’s Capital.”
