Linguistic Diversity in Georgia

Published by Asian Americans Advancing Justice-Atlanta and Anar Parikh, PhD, March 2023.

Georgia is a vibrant and diverse state. More than 1.4 million (14.3%) Georgia residents speak a language other than English at home. This report seeks to highlight the state’s linguistic diversity for community organizations, advocates, legislators, county and state administrators, and the media. This data can be used to identify policy priorities around language access and equity, advocacy efforts, and community needs for translation and interpretation. 

We hope that it will serve as a roadmap for those seeking to address linguistic barriers faced by those with a non-English language preference so that every Georgian can access healthcare, educational opportunities and the democratic process regardless of which language they speak and read.
