How can I get ahold of a supervisor?

My husband and I have been calling for WEEKS to try and get an update on our application and to find out what’s going on. No one has called back.

Court is on the 19th, we still have no lawyer. The woman we just spoke to said that she sent an email to the supervisor but it could be days before we hear anything.

We live in FL. Days is not an option. We can’t be told last minute that we can’t get assistance and need to reschedule. It doesn’t work that way. It’s a 16 hour drive. We have to get a rental car. We have to take off work. We need NOTICE. And so do the courts if we’re asking for a postponement!

Like this is ridiculous! We were told that some letter and email were sent out; they were sent to god knows who but it wasn’t the address or email we gave them. No one can tell us what it says.

Our son was kidnapped and we need HELP. when we told the woman on the phone this, she laughed! Like what in the world is funny about that?? Who laughs at talk of a kidnapped child? Are you kidding?

How do we talk to somebody who can help? How do we get ahold of a supervisor who can actually tell us what is going on? ASAP.

Thank you.

LSNV was honored to be visited by Douglas Emhoff, the Second Gentleman of the United States. Mr. Emhoff, who is himself a lawyer, listened with great interest to stories about the challenges we have faced serving low-income individuals and underserved communities before and during the pandemic, and about the successes that we have had responding to those challenges. We are grateful for his engagement on these fundamental issues of Access to Justice.

May is Asian American and Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander Heritage Month. LSNV would like to join in paying tribute to and recognizing the great contributions and influence of Asians, Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders in American society and culture.

The first federal celebration of these communities began in 1978 with the establishment of Asian Pacific American Heritage Week, a 10-day celebration in early May. In 1990, the celebration was extended to the full month of May. We celebrate in May for two reasons. First, May 7, 1843, marks the day when the first documented Japanese immigrant arrived in the United States. Second, the first transcontinental railroad was completed on May 10, 1869—a project that greatly changed the nation and in which more than 20,000 Chinese workers took part.

Today, approximately 25 million people of Asian, Hawaiian, or Pacific Islander heritage live in the US. Each of these communities has a unique history, culture, language(s), and other characteristics. To learn more or to find events to celebrate this May, you can visit: https://asianpacificheritage.gov/

Yesterday, Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer, was found guilty of murdering George Floyd. We hope that this verdict can begin the healing process for the family and loved ones of George Floyd and the community at large.

The fact that one police officer was held accountable by the justice system is a sign that we are beginning to acknowledge the disproportionate harm experienced by BIPOC communities at the hands of law enforcement. However, this conviction alone cannot right the injustices still pervasive within the legal system.

Just this week, news stories have circulated about two teens — one Latino and Black Latino, Adam Toledo and Ma’Khia Bryant, being killed by police. It is going to take continued pressure to make sure there is sustained accountability for police and a true dismantling of inequity and white supremacy, in the justice system and beyond. The urgency of that mission is sharpened with each passing day.

Like most legal organizations around Virginia and the US, LSNV was motivated to expand its work toward racial equity in a concrete way last summer after observing the murders of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd. Now, the stories of violence experienced by Army Second Lt. Caron Nazario and Daunte Wright have underscored the urgency of taking active steps toward racial equity.

At LSNV, our hearts go out to Army Second Lt. Caron Nazario and the family and loved ones of Daunte Wright. Mr. Wright’s tragic killing and the senseless violence against Army Second Lt. Caron Nazario do and should weigh heavily on our collective consciousness.

Virginia Governor Ralph Northam released a statement saying, “Our Commonwealth has done important work on police reform, but we must keep working to ensure Virginians are safe during interactions with police, the enforcement of laws is fair and equitable, and people are held accountable.”

LSNV believes that we cannot advocate for equal justice if we ignore pervasive inequities and systemic racism. In the face of these historic injustices, we must speak out and lead in order to ensure change.

Legal Services of Northern Virginia stands with our community of legal aid providers to support survivors of anti-Asian hate and violence, their families, and our AAPI communities. We are committed to addressing and correcting bias, prejudice, racism, and hatred against Asian-Americans and all underserved communities in Northern Virginia.

LSNV is saddened by the recent increase in violence against our AAPI communities that is encouraged by the spread of false information and implicit and explicit biases that have attempted to legitimize racism in our country. We strive to improve our delivery of legal services for everyone, regardless of their race, color, national origin, ethnicity, or religion. We will continue to work with our local legal aid partners and organizations to reach this goal and to create a culture of belonging for all of our clients and staff members.

We urge our fellow community members to work together to #StopAsianHate. Do your part to support the Asian American community: talk about the intersections of racism, sexism, and exploitation of immigrant workers. You can report incidents of violence, learn more, and work towards becoming an ally for our AAPI communities by checking out: stopaapihate.org.
