Ensuring that minoritized communities' access to health care and social/legal services, not just in policy but in practice. Ensuring that health care and services providers' policies and practices actively promote rights of accessibility, that responsibility does not only fall upon the minoritized population to advocate for translation/interpretation/linguistically accessible information.
