Asian American Legal Advocacy Center

The Asian American Legal Advocacy Center, Inc. (AALAC) of Georgia is the first non-profit law center focused on Asian Americans, Pacific Islanders, and Asian-ethnic refugees (“Asian Americans”) in the Southeast.  AALAC was formed in the spring of 2010 in response to Asian Americans wanting a stronger voice and presence in the state’s civic, social and political power structures.

AALAC is a leader and go-to resource for Asian American justice issues in the Southeast. We provide trusted, non-partisan, legal education and policy work that is focused on promoting the rights of Asian Americans in our state and region.  We mobilize Asian Americans around real-life stories and hardships we hear about on the ground, with a focus on representing our broader community interests.

AALAC’s vision is a social movement in the Southeast where individuals are fully empowered, active in civic life, and working together to promote equity and fair treatment for all. AALAC believes the only sustainable way to effect change is for Asian Americans to achieve full civic integration and work together on policies that impact our jobs, our health, our social welfare and our voting power.  AALAC will realize this vision by providing legal education, hosting social justice forums, training lawyers and students for public service, fostering community coalitions, and mobilizing groups to speak out on common issues of concern.
