The Chinese American Legal Defense Alliance (CALDA) is the United States’ FIRST and ONLY non-profit organization dedicated to providing free legal representation to all Chinese Americans who have suffered racial discrimination and hatred. Our mission is to seek justice and racial equality through litigation and other legal actions. CALDA will retain the best lawyers and hire the biggest guns for the little guys. We will defend Chinese American victims of racial discrimination in a court of law against all offenders, be it an individual, a company, or the government.   

Last month a 91-year-old Chinese American walking on a street of the Oakland Chinatown was attacked. And then, the senseless killing of six Asian women in Atlanta last week, with an explanation from the police that the killer “had a bad day”.   

Enough. We shall fight back!

Why donate to CALDA?

1.     We bring legal actions for Chinese American victims of racial discrimination and hatred to seek compensation and justice;

2.     We defend Chinese Americans in lawsuits who have been unjustly treated due to the color of their skin;
