Help wanted for new anti-racial profiling project
United Chinese Americans (UCA) is partnering with Asian American Advance Justice (AAJC) to support the launching of “The Anti-Racial Profiling Project” in October 2020.
“The Anti-Racial Profiling Project offers resources and legal referrals for those impacted by the U.S. government’s increased efforts to target and profile Chinese scientists and researchers. As part of our educational awareness efforts, we work with partners to make sure people know their rights when approached by law enforcement. The Anti-Racial Profiling Project also en-gages in policy analysis, coalition building and public education around these and related pro-filing issues for policymakers, the media, and the general public. Our goal is to be a resource, advocate for non-discriminatory policies, and provide legal expertise and to lift up the voices of those impacted by racial profiling.”
UCA is looking for volunteer translators to support this important project that directly benefit the Chinese American community, especially new immigrants from China.
Two types of volunteers are needed: message reviewers and document translators.
The project will continue develop community outreach/engagement messages to create awareness of the available resources to the Chinese American community. We need experi-enced bilingual (English/Chinese) translators to review and edit the messages to assure the accuracy and effectiveness of communication. The reviewers will received the message in both the original English and the Chinese translation for prove reading and editing. The turna-round time is usually short (24 – 48 hours).
From time to time, the Project may engage larger volume of legal documents translation. We need translators with relevant experiences (legal, political, cultural, social and economic, busi-ness, etc.) for assistance. This type of work is usually less frequent and has longer time frame but require longer term engagement.
