Posted: November 17, 2016

Asian Americans Advancing Justice – Asian Law Caucus (ALC) is seeking Vietnamese-speaking volunteers to help with Vietnamese-English interpretation for our Workers’ Rights program. Founded in 1972, ALC is the nation’s first legal and civil rights organization serving low-income Asian and Pacific Islander (API) communities. We strive to defend and empower the API community through a three-pronged strategy of direct legal services, strategic impact litigation, and community empowerment/organizing. ALC focuses on Workers’ Rights, Housing Rights, Voting Rights, National Security and Civil Rights, and Criminal Justice Reform. Our Workers’ Rights program provides legal counseling, policy advocacy, direct services and impact litigation for low-income immigrant workers on a wide range of workplace issues, including race and national-origin discrimination, wage and hour problems, and workplace safety.

We invite you to consider volunteering at ALC to explore public interest work and gain exposure to community law practice. Volunteers are needed to assist with Vietnamese-English interpretation on special projects as needed for the Workers’ Rights program. There may be opportunities to volunteer for other programs. Volunteers will be supervised by one or more staff members in our San Francisco office. They may receive course credit or meet course requirements for volunteering.

Requirements:
Language: Fluency in Vietnamese and English.
Availability: Open. Prefer local candidates.

How to Apply: Interested candidates should submit a resume and cover letter explaining their interest in volunteering/interpreting with Advancing Justice – ALC to Ms. Victoria Chan at victoriac@advancingjustice-alc.org. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.

Asian Americans Advancing Justice – Asian Law Caucus is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.  All qualified persons are encouraged to apply, regardless of race, color, creed, ethnicity, national origin, ancestry, age, height, weight, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, HIV status, marital or domestic partner status, or religious affiliation.

My understanding is the US plans to deport 200 cambodians per year until everybody with an order of removal is deported. I don't mean to cause fear but I strongly encourage anybody with a removal order to fight their cases now because once you are detained it becomes much more difficult to have access to attorneys and other resources. I fear this cycle will continue over the next few years.

I am an immigration attorney and I was at immigration court today. I represented four individuals, all from Vietnam, all legal permanent residents with old crimes and recent entries to the U.S. I echo the suggestions above. If you have a removal/deportation order, if you have a history of crimes, if you plan on traveling outside of the U.S., speak with an immigration attorney.

The Cambodian and Viet communities are again targeted by US militarism-police abuse: from being attacked and displaced in the war in Indochina to becoming refugees to living in US ghetto-conditions to jail now to deportation. This is generational torture by imperialism. Like the Central American exodus the US exports war and guns, imports labor via refugees, over polices them and deports people, and so the cycle continues. I am so sad and sick. I take actions at rallies and make donations to express my rage and solidarity but where do I put the sadness.
