AALDEF seeking Nepali Volunteer Interpreter


Founded in 1974, the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund (AALDEF) is a national organization that protects and promotes the civil rights of Asian Americans. By combining litigation, advocacy, education, and organizing, AALDEF works with Asian American communities across the country to secure human rights for all.

For Summer 2012 and Fall 2012, AALDEF seeks undergraduate or graduate volunteers who are fluent in both Nepali and English to participate in client legal meetings as interpreters.  Volunteers will gain valuable experience working alongside AALDEF attorneys in client advocacy and community education, and receive close supervision in a legal environment.  A minimum time commitment of 5 hours per week is highly desired.

Interested volunteers should contact AALDEF staff attorney Shirley Lin at [email protected] by June 18 (Summer 2012) or July 31 (Fall 2012).
