Over the past 32 years as a nonprofit corporation, the Asian Law Alliance has helped tens of thousands of people in obtaining decent housing, justice in the immigration process, and access to basic human and legal rights.
Today, Asian/Pacific Islanders continue to be denied fundamental rights. ALA continues to keep its doors open for those individuals who are limited in English, who do not understand the legal system, who cannot afford legal fees and who face the reality of discrimination.
ALA provides multilingual, culturally sensitive legal services, community education and advocacy services to the low-income Asian/Pacific Islander population and low income population in Santa Clara County. Attorneys can assist with various research projects and the once a year Citizenship Day.
