Asian Americans Advancing Justice | Asian Law Caucus is the nation’s first legal and civil rights organization serving the low-income Asian Pacific American communities. Its mission is to promote, advance, and represent the legal and civil rights of the Asian and Pacific Islander communities.
The mission of Advancing Justice | Asian Law Caucus is to promote, advance, and represent the legal and civil rights of Asian and Pacific Islander (API) communities. Recognizing that social, economic, political and racial inequalities continue to exist in the United States, Advancing Justice | ALC is committed to the pursuit of equality and justice for all sectors of our society, with a specific focus directed toward addressing the needs of low-income, immigrant and underserved APIs.
Since the vast majority of Asians and Pacific Islanders in America are immigrants and refugees, the Caucus strives to create informed and educated communities empowered to assert their rights and to participate actively in American society. This perspective is reflected in our broad strategy which integrates the provision of legal services, educational programs, community organizing initiatives and advocacy.
