As Minnesota’s premier translation and interpretation services provider, we are proud to sponsor AccessAbility Rockin’ 5K Race/ Walk & Roll at North Mississippi Regional Park in Minneapolis, on Saturday, June 11.
The Rockin’ 5K Race/ Walk & Roll is a fundraiser for AccessAbility’s programs that support people on the path to becoming self-sufficient and break down barriers to employment. It’s a great match – The Language Banc is also in the business of breaking down barriers – our team breaks down cultural and language barriers for people every day.
Siyad Abdualhi, founder and CEO of The Language Banc says, “We couldn’t be more proud to partner with AccessAbility, their programs have a meaningful impact on the lives of people in our community. Their work is making Minneapolis a better place for all of us.”
The best part is that everyone can participate in the Rockin’ 5K, come and run, walk or roll or to enjoy the park on what we hope will be a beautiful June day.

Established in 1948 and headquartered in Northeast Minneapolis, AccessAbility serves an incredibly diverse community of people, all of whom face barriers to sustainable employment and community inclusion. These barriers include disabilities, homelessness, prior involvement in the criminal justice system, and limited English literacy, just to name a few.
By partnering with businesses and organizations throughout the Twin Cities, we are able to provide programs and services which help people remain on a path to self-sufficiency.
