Meeting addresses need of more resources for Alhambra immigrant families

A meeting in Alhambra earlier this month raised awareness to a need for more resources for local immigrant families, according to advocates.

The Asian Pacific American Legal Center held its 2nd Annual Family Forum in Alhambra on May 21 at the First Baptist Church. “I think the most prevalent issue is this population's lack of resources,” said the organization’s San Gabriel Valley Youth & Community Coordinator, Mike Pedro. “Many of the participants are first generation, low-income immigrants who need assistance with regards to health, legal rights, and education.”

The event drew more than 150 residents from Alhambra and the surrounding communities of Monterey Park, San Gabriel and Rosemead. Participants were able to select from a variety of workshops on healthy living, legal rights, financial literacy, and college admission and financial aid.

“I think most participants were interested in the legal rights track – consisting of citizenship, housing, workers rights – and secondly the healthy living track – eating healthy, exercise,” said Pedro. “Also, it looked like the legal assistance booths were getting the most attention in the community resource fair.”

While the event’s attendance was up from last year, Pedro is unsure if the Family Forum will be located in Alhambra again next year.

“We are definitely planning to have a 3rd Annual Family Forum next year to serve the San Gabriel Valley,” said Pedro. “Last year it was in Rosemead, this year in Alhambra. As far as the exact location, I am not too sure about that yet however it did seem like Alhambra was a central location to many of the participants.”
