The demographics in Illinois have shifted considerably. 1 in 5 Chicagoans are now limited English proficient. We live in a multicultural country, multicultural state and we are more diverse than ever. This has caused agencies, stakeholders and providers to shift the work.

In My Language is a tool for limited English survivors as well as their advocates to access resources. Users start by selecting the language they want to use. The first page has a map of DV agencies, Courts and Police offices located within Chicago. The site also has sections that explain DV terms, the OP Process, the access to an interpreter and offer safety advice.
