Jan. 6, 2016

CFI thanks all interpreters who documented obstacles to language access in California courts as part of our month-long campaign, held October 13 through November 13, 2015. We received incident reports from 14 counties: Fresno, Tulare, El Dorado, Orange, San Diego, Los Angeles, Santa Clara, San Mateo, Alameda, San Francisco, Sonoma, Napa, Santa Cruz and Sacramento.

The general themes that emerged from these reports can be broken down as follows:

Welcome 2016-2017 Officers

On behalf of all CFI members, I would like to welcome our brand new officers who have so generously agreed to give their valuable personal time to running our interpreter only union for the next two years. It has been my privilege to serve as president for the first twelve months of life of CFI Local 39000 and I look forward to all the challenges that lie ahead knowing we have such a talented group of people at the helm.
