Where we aren’t judged by the color of our skin, but by the content of our character.

1. What problems does Rights address?

We often don’t understand the . We’re often exploited & abused by our employers. As perpetual outsiders, we live in fear. Fear of constantly changing rules & regulations. Fear of crackdowns. Fear of anti-foreign sentiment.

2. How many people are affected?

Currently there are over 1 million expats in . Everyday we have expats coming to us for legal . Everyday we have expats coming to us reporting being screwed by their employer or their recruiter. Every expat needs this!

3. What’s your history?

ExpatRights was founded when I got sick & tired of being the perpetual outsiders in my new homeland of 13+ years. We’ve always been involved in immigrant rights organizations abroad, and we suddenly realized we needed an organization, for ourselves!

Much of the recent motivation & passion comes from my daughter, who despite being born to a mother, in China, is also treated as a perpetual outsider.

4. Success Stories

Our network of volunteers (lawyers & Expats) across China helps expats with their legal problems every single day. Our Chinese cultural outreach has thousands of views in the last month alone, with content like “ I am not American.”

My personal favorite success story is when a lady called us after the police raided her school, where she was doing a ‘teaching demo’ and caught on video. She was unable to speak Chinese so we helped calm her down, helped her talk to the police & eventually even helped her get off with just a warning.

5. Why ExpatRights?

We’re uniquely positioned at #ExpatRights because we’re run by an expat with a mixed family. Because we’re willing to talk about this stuff where nobody else was. Because unlike lawyers or ‘connected expats’, we’re not profiting from our ability to navigate a broken system.

6. Why raise money?

We need your help to continue providing free legal assistance to all China expats.

We need your help to build a complete China legal database, in & translated into as many languages as possible.

We need your help to continue our Chinese outreach. To change hearts & minds. To educate about Expat life in China.

We need your help to support our staff. (Currently 1 part-time writer, 1 part-time social media person & myself).

Your gift goes towards a multicultural China.

Where we can walk down the street without hearing ‘laowai, laowai’.

Where we’re no longer a slave to our employers on a broken work visa, or unable to work on a broken .

Where we no longer hear the excuse that China is not an immigrant nation.

as multicultural as Toronto, NYC, London.
