Asian Pacific American Legal Resource Center (APALRC)

Status:

The mission of the APALRC is the advance the civil and legal rights of Asian Americans by focusing on providing linguistically accessible and culturally appropriate legal services to low-income Asian immigrants in Metro-DC who have limited English proficiency. The goal is to ensure that Asian Americans can access government services and the legal system to protect and enforce their right, and to seek full participation in American society. The APALRC seeks to accomplish this mission through a three-prong strategy that combines community legal education, individual representation, and systemic advocacy.
