mayan language interpreter

Your contribution of $100 provides a Mayan interpreter to a child. Many of SJC clients speak Mam, an indigenous Guatemalan language, and do not understand or speak Spanish. Having an interpreter is essential to providing legal representation. Because SJC’s Mam interpreters are immigrants themselves, it also helps us provide culturally sensitive representation.
