Tina Talk 2: Language Access in Schools

Rep. Tina Orwall (D-Des Moines) and Open Doors for Multicultural Families staff and Family Leaders discuss the importance of Language Access in helping families communicate with school staff.  

Orwall highlights the leadership of Open Doors in the conception of House Bill (HB) 1153, aimed at increasing language access in Washington's public schools. HB 1153 passed the Legislature and was signed into law in 2022.

Family leaders, like those featured in this video, were instrumental to passing this landmark legislation.
