Advancing Justice – LA works in conjunction with its community partners to assist AANHPI individuals who are targets of discrimination based upon race, ethnicity, or national origin, particularly in the contexts of housing, employment, and consumer contracts.
To offer guidance and assistance throughout the year, community advocates are available through telephone helplines in five Asian languages plus English. Victims who are afraid or uncertain about their civil or human rights can use the helplines confidentially.
Anti-discrimination services include victim assistance by advocates who can connect individuals with non-legal services that address the emotional and collateral fallout of incidents of hate and racism.
Through monthly housing clinics, in conjunction with local bar associations, people experiencing discrimination have an opportunity to consult one-on-one with an attorney in their language..
We urge those who want to take action to enroll in bystander training (more details and how to sign up below).
In collaboration with all our affiliates throughout the U.S., we track incidents of hate at StandAgainstHatred.org. The hate tracking website is available in Chinese, Korean, and Vietnamese. Community members share their experiences of hate. The data collected is combined with other community group efforts to bring further awareness to the growth in racism against Asian Americans. Hate incidents are widely underreported for numerous reason including cultural stigmas, language barriers, fear in the community and mistrust in law enforcement.
Advancing Justice - LA serves as a voice on behalf of the AANHPI community and develops ongoing public education and awareness campaigns to keep the fight alive against anti-Asian discrimination
