News / April 19, 2021

BakerHostetler has joined the list of more than 45 law firms and 17 general counsel from Fortune 1000 companies that will provide Asian-American communities with pro bono legal support in the wake of a surge in reported hate crimes. The Alliance for Asian American Justice is a nationwide coalition to provide “culturally responsive” legal support and advocacy to victims of anti-Asian hate crimes and harassment, addressing the needs of a population that, organizers say, is frequently marginalized in the legal system. Services will include filing lawsuits in pursuit of compensatory and other civil remedies, and coordinating with law enforcement to ensure hate crime perpetrators are held accountable.
