Dear Colleagues,

We are launching this petition to demand dignity in our courts. We are professional interpreters and we should be compensated as professionals. We haven’t gotten a raise in 19 years! Our state budget has had a surplus – Minnesota District Courts can afford to give us a raise and we need it now.

Minnesota’s diversity continues to grow and with it the need for qualified District Court interpreters. But more and more interpreters are moving to the private sector where wages are higher. We want to keep the Minnesota justice system staffed with interpreters that are passionate about serving within the justice system. But that is not possible unless a change is made.

Add your voice to the growing list of interpreters and sign now!

Your colleagues at LINGUA
