    APABA is committed to serving the Asian Pacific American community of Colorado, and as such, we will be offering a FREE, Virtual Legal Hotline to provide legal resources to the community via email.

    From our conversations with the APA business community, there is a need for resources in the areas of landlord/tenant issues, business operation questions (including compliance with local/state guidelines), labor/employment issues, and questions about the CARES Act. 

    In order to provide this resource, we need your help. We need volunteers to:

    • serve on our listserve to provide resources to the community by email
    • help us run this virtual program.

    Participants will receive questions from the community via email and will have resources available in our cloud database to help answer questions.  

    Please fill out the form below to tell us about your availability and your area of expertise: https://forms.gle/Gewic9Xs6UAYdSGX6

    If you know of someone in the community with a legal question or needs assistance, please share this link with them to get their questions to us: https://forms.gle/1EerW3RLstzvuppm7

    We are working on creating a flyer about the virtual legal hotline in a number of Asian languages to share with the community.
