More than 45 law firms and 17 general counsel from Fortune 1000 companies have dispatched their pro bono programs to provide Asian American communities with legal support in the wake of a surge in reported hate crimes against a population organizers say is frequently marginalized in the legal system.

The Alliance for Asian American Justice went public Thursday morning, launching a nationwide coalition to provide “culturally responsive” legal support and advocacy to victims of anti-Asian hate crimes and harassment. The founding board members include lawyers from McDermott Will & Emery, Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, White & Case and Norton Rose Fulbright, while a number of other Am Law 200 firms are on the list of members. The full list is below.
