California Federation of Interpreters, Local 39000
The labor union and professional association for court interpreters statewide
CFI’s mission is to bring together interpreters _ employees and independent contractors _ of all languages to speak with one voice: the voice of unity. Together we advocate for the interests of the legal interpreting profession and language access. We engage in advocacy on a broad range of issues including professional best practices, training programs and certification standards. Our annual conference is one of the largest gathering of interpreters and offers attendees the required continuing education credits and networking opportunities to professional and aspiring court interpreters.
