The Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund (AALDEF), in partnership with the Asian American Bar Association of New York (AABANY), the National Center for Law and Economic Justice (NCLEJ), the New York Coalition for Asian American Mental Health (NYCAAMH), and the Chinese-American Family Alliance for Mental Health (CAFAMH), will be holding a free one-day legal and mental health event on Sunday Oct. 1, 2017, from 12 noon to 4:30 pm at Flushing Library (IRC Conference Room), 41-17 Main Street, Flushing, NY 11355.

The event will provide information and resources for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients. Volunteer attorneys will be on-site to help eligible DACA recipients complete their renewal forms to meet the Oct. 5, 2017 renewal deadline. Please bring all necessary documents and paperwork. We may be able to assist with the fees.

Bilingual and bicultural AAPI mental health providers will be available on-site to provide supportive counseling to DACA recipients and their family. The providers will listen and offer suggestions to help you cope with your stress level. We will protect the anonymity and confidentality of all participants.

Congresswoman Grace Meng, who represents New York's 6th District, will make a few remarks at the beginning of the event.
