Hosted by Bet Tzedek, in partnership with the Asian Pacific American Women Lawyers Alliance (APAWLA)

Immigrant and low-income communities have been economically devastated by COVID-19. Asian American communities in Los Angeles are no exception. The goal of this clinic is to provide assistance to Chinese-speaking workers in Los Angeles County with work-related issues.

Clinics are held virtually every Wednesdays from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m., starting Wednesday, June 3, 2020 until Wednesday, July 29, 2020. Volunteers are required to be available by phone for a 2-hour block (between 4:00 to 8:00 p.m.) to participate in the Wednesday clinic.

Through the virtual clinic, volunteers conduct intake interviews of clients who seeking pro bono legal aid for employment issues, with a focus on serving Chinese speakers. Volunteers will gain experience working directly with supervising attorneys and discussing how California law applies to the clients' unique circumstances.

APAWLA Installation Dinner 2020 - POSTPONED

To Our Friends and Colleagues:

We cannot express how thankful we are for your generous support of APAWLA’s 2020 Annual Installation Dinner, which was scheduled for April 2, 2020.

In light of the daily evolving COVID-19 public health concerns, and in line with state and local advisements, the APAWLA board has decided to postpone our installation dinner until the fall. We are working with the Music Center to determine a new date and will make another announcement as soon as that date is confirmed. At that time, our guests will have the option to (A) attend our dinner on the new scheduled date or (B) request a refund for any amounts already paid to APAWLA. We are deeply grateful to our guests and sponsors for their continued support and hope to see everyone at our dinner on the new date.  

We wish everyone the best during this trying time and we look forward to being together in the fall.

Sincerely,

Calimay Pham
APAWLA President
