Friends, Partners, and Community,

Due to the current orders to shelter at home from San Francisco, Alameda, San Mateo, Contra Costa, and other counties, as well as the State of California, API Legal Outreach has closed its offices to the public but continues its work remotely.

Please note that we continue to take calls and e-mails from current clients and participants, and those with urgent matters. We are considered an essential service or essential workforce under these orders and our staff continues to take calls and work on cases from home.

Emergency cases that require court appearances, for example domestic violence and elder abuse restraining orders, immigration court appearances, and other emergency cases are still being handled by our multilingual staff.

If you are in danger please call 911.

In the near future we plan to release information on any new legislation intended to provide financial assistance to our communities and efforts to combat anti-Asian racism based on the origin of the virus.  Please check back on this website for updates.

Please be safe and healthy.  We will see you soon. But in the meantime, please contact us during office hours as we are taking live calls by calling (415) 567 6255 or (510) 251 2846
