Working for Equal Justice in the Asian Pacific Islander Community
For thirty-eight years, Asian Pacific Islander Legal Outreach has worked to level long-standing barriers that have denied Asians and Pacific Islanders equal justice and equal access to our legal system. The legal system has failed to provide fair and just treatment to our communities based historically on such factors as economic status, gender, age, ethnicity, sexual preference, race, religion, nationality, and language.
API Legal Outreach has always been directed by its community-based model. Leadership on vital issues has been driven from the community up. At the same time, we have been community workers, lawyers, advocates, teachers and activists working to instill in the community a sense of its legal rights and protections while advocating against injustice.
Our clients and our communities are often invisible and marginalized. But such clients, prevented from enjoying the basic rights and benefits of this society, epitomize the fight for equal justice. API Legal Outreach's work for justice confronts the daily struggles of those with extraordinary needs. In all aspects, our mission has been the provision of equal justice through culturally and linguistically competent services. Our staff come from diverse backgrounds and speaks Cantonese, Chiu-chow, Gujarati, Hindi, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Tagalog, Taiwanese, Toisan, Vietnamese, Russian, and Spanish.
