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 work to improving the legal health of low-income, limited-English proficient, Asian immigrant communities in the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Northern Virginia.

Leadership Circle members are partners in our work. We look forward to having regular dialogues with you on important issues in the organization and 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 critical work. Thank you for your consideration, and we hope you will join us!
