The Office of Multicultural Affairs – Global Lex – is a multilingual, multidisciplinary center where local residents and our growing foreign population celebrate cultural events, share an art gallery and befriend one another.
Global Lex is charged with assessing the service needs of Lexington’s immigrants, refugees, visitors, and other limited English proficient individuals and supports their civic integration and access to business and services in compliance with Kentucky and federal law.
The office provides multilingual assistance, cross-cultural education and links to the international communities to all divisions of the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government and to the community at-large on request.
