"One of the needs the city has asked for us to help fulfill are certified translators who speak English and Spanish, and can also assist in crisis" Bolivar said. "We have a number of people who may not be equipped to properly assist, so we are asking for professional translators for families in need."
Bolivar said the professionals will not only help families directly impacted by the shooting, but also for people looking to have a conversation with their children about the violence. Bolivar asked people to send tips to info@HispanicChamber.net, and her organization will organize and pass the information to the City of Orlando.
