Asian Americans Advancing Justice - LA

Building upon the legacy of the Asian Pacific American Legal Center

ALLIP

The Asian Language Legal Intake Project (ALLIP) provides toll-free hotlines in Cambodian (Khmer), Chinese (Mandarin and Cantonese), Korean, Thai and Vietnamese.

The intake team also provides help in English, Japanese, Tagalog and other languages.

Callers receive resources, counseling or referral to an Advancing Justice - LA attorney or another legal aid organization, on issues such as housing, domestic violence, family law, immigration, citizenship, consumer fraud or discrimination.

ALLIP was launched in 2002 to provide direct contact between limited English speaking immigrants and legal advocates and receives more than 4,000 calls each year. As the only Asian language legal intake program in Southern California with trained bilingual staff, it is a critical resource for indigent monolingual or limited English speaking immigrants in need of legal assistance.
