Looking for ways to support immigrants in the D.C. metropolitan area?  Passionate about ensuring that low-income immigrants have access to free critical legal services?  We hope you will consider donating to the Asian Pacific American Legal Resource Center (APALRC), the only legal services organization in the D.C. metropolitan area dedicated to providing linguistically and culturally appropriate legal services to the local low-income Asian Pacific Islander population.  Over the past two decades, the APALRC has helped victims of domestic violence obtain orders of protection, custody of their children and relief under the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), assisted lawful permanent residents become U.S. citizens, filed petitions for U and T visas on behalf of victims of crime and trafficking, advocated for the preservation of ethnic neighborhoods and low-income housing in D.C., and provided assistance to D.C. crime victims in obtaining victim compensation and other civil relief.
