Now That You’re Here
At the June AAWGT education program four panelists outlined the services available to help navigate language and cultural barriers for those seeking medical help, legal advice, child and family social services, and education. The emphasis was on the Hispanic community as that is the largest and fastest growing group in Anne Arundel County.
Marc Rodriguez, Alderman, City of Annapolis, moderated panel members Nancy Schrum, Gaston Gomez, Waleska Casiano-Matos, and Annapolis high school student, Ada Garcia Sosa.
Attendees were inspired by the stories of our speakers and left with an understanding that these efforts at language education, cultural assimilation, and general assistance requires greater attention from government and private sources.
