Do Something! – Some Opportunities

August is almost over, school years are revving up again, and I’m still working on getting my brain to wake up on proper East Coast time whereas perhaps my phantom soul brain’s internal clock has been steadfastly set somewhere in California for the past couple years.

Some opportunities for you to exercise your superstardom and work within the APA community.

APALRC (DC) – Volunteer & Legal Interpreters
APALRC in DC is welcoming volunteer applications until Sept. 9. Do it. Awesome organization that could use some support & you’ll gain a lot out of it. They’re also looking for new interpreters for their Legal Interpreter Project for all Asian languages, including Thai, Urdu, Nepali & Tagalog. E-mail with a copy of your resume and a brief description of your language skills.

National Asian Pacific Center on Aging (DC) – P/T Legislative Consultant Details

APALC (CA) – Policy Advocate – Health Access Project . They’re looking for people with a relevant advanced degree. Go for it if you have a JD and interest in health. Details.

AALDEF (NY) – Voting Rights Organizer. Another “alternative” path for a JD-holder, this one for those interested in electoral rights and advocacy. Details.
