NLADA is a leading voice for the equal justice community.  We focus on promoting excellence in civil legal aid and public defense, and we speak with the media and in other public settings to share our knowledge about the importance of proper legal representation for everyone in the United States.


NLADA joins with our community of public defenders, civil legal aid providers and client advocates in strongly denouncing the increase of violence and hate crimes against persons of Asian and Pacific Islander (AAPI) ancestry. There is no place in America for racial discrimination or hate crimes, and we will work in partnership with directly impacted communities to eradicate these evils.

These violent incidents and the initial tepid response to them illustrate the proliferation of hate being driven by implicit and explicit bias and the spread of false information and narratives intended to legitimize racism. We all must raise our voice against this hate.
