Leadership Circle

Join Us!

The Asian Pacific American Legal Resource Center (APALRC) invites you to join its Leadership Circle! When you become a member of the Leadership Circle, you are joining a group of generous individuals who provide philanthropic leadership for the APALRC’s critical duty in improving the legal health of low-income Asian immigrants with limited English proficiency in communities across the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Northern Virginia.

Leadership Circle members are valued partners in our work. We look forward to having regular dialogues with you on important issues in both the organization and the wider API community.

Membership is renewable each year and payable monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, or annually. For more information, please contact us at (202) 706-7057. With your support, we remain more resolved than ever to continue our essential work. Thank you very much for your consideration, and we sincerely hope you will join us in our endeavor!
