On Wednesday, September 12, AABANY’s Monthly Pro Bono Clinic was held for the first at its new location, 3 Bowery, in Confucius Plaza. Thanks to the Chinese Chamber of Commerce of New York, our long-time community partner, for making this new space available to us. At this larger location at street level, we were able to present a Know-Your-Rights talk about labor and employment law, given by Pro Bono and Community Service Committee Co-Chair Karen Yau, at the beginning to a full room of community members who came to get free legal advice. We had a record number of nearly 50 people who dropped in to our monthly walk-in clinic. They were helped by the following volunteer attorneys:

  • Kwok Kei Ng
  • Youngjin Choi
  • Yan Sin
  • Sejal Singh
  • Mihea Kim
  • David Lu
  • Jeffrey Mok
  • Francis Chin
  • Christopher Chin

In addition, the following volunteer interpreters provided translation assistance:

  • Alva Lin
  • Jessica Pan
  • Teresa Wai Yee Yeung
  • Zhixian Liu
  • Karen Eng
  • Wei Ling Huang

We thank all our volunteers for their assistance at the September pro bono clinic. Special thanks to Pro Bono and Community Service Committee Co-Chairs Pauline Yeung, Karen Kithan Yau, Ming Chu Lee, and Asako Aiba for organizing the monthly clinics and coordinating all the volunteers.
