Know Your Rights - y Tus Derechos

My internship with the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination involved connecting people with information about Discrimination Law. The people most likely to face discrimination were also least able to access information about their rights. I discovered that legal documents were often translated incorrectly because they failed to use corresponding legal terms and instead used very literal translations.  While traveling around communities in the greater Boston area to give presentations, using both my majors helped me connect more people with information about their rights.
