How to Support the AAPI Community

 

Advancing Justice–LA works in conjunction with its community partners to assist AANHPI individuals who are targets of discrimination based upon race, ethnicity, or national origin, particularly in the contexts of housing, employment, and consumer contracts. Advancing Justice – LA’s monthly clinics, in conjunction with local bar associations, will give people experiencing discrimination an opportunity to consult with an attorney about their experience. Services also include assisting victims in connecting with and utilizing non-legal services that address the emotional and collateral fallout of discrimination. If you need help, call us. If you are an ally, here are ways you can take action.
