NEW YORK – May 26, 2017 – The Asian American Bar Association of New York (“AABANY”) is proud to partner with Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer for an important discussion celebrating Asian Pacific American (APA) Heritage Month on Tuesday, May 30, 2017 at the New York offices of Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer. Susan L. Shin, Immediate Past President of AABANY and Partner at Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer, moderates a discussion from three prominent APAs serving in the Federal government, in the executive, judicial and legislative branches. Hear from these trailblazers what they do, how they got there and how they exemplify AABANY’s theme of “Take Charge; Lead Change” by working for the public good.
“For the Public Good: APA Lawyers Taking Charge and Leading Change” features Acting U.S. Attorney Joon Kim (Southern District of New York), the Honorable Denny Chin (Second Circuit Court of Appeals), and Representative Grace Meng (6th District of New York and Vice Chair of the Democratic National Committee). We anticipate a large turnout as over 200 people have registered for this event.
“We are excited to be hosting Acting U.S. Attorney Joon Kim, Judge Denny Chin and Congresswoman Grace Meng for this stellar panel discussion during APA Heritage Month,” says AABANY Executive Director Yang Chen. “These APA leaders are trailblazers and role models and serve as inspirations to countless attorneys. We look forward to hearing their stories and their insights into public service. We believe that new generations of lawyers will be inspired and moved by them to Take Charge and Lead Change.”

After a historic Democratic National Convention in which Hillary Clinton became the first woman to be nominated for President by a major political party, more history was made when Congresswoman Grace Meng (D-NY) was elected Vice Chair of the Democratic National Committee.
“I will bring to this role the same commitment to elevating diverse voices that has driven so much of my public service,” said Congresswoman Meng. “I will work tirelessly to elect leaders who will take on vital issues like immigration reform and gun safety. I will bring our energy and passion to work within the DNC to ensure it represents Democrats from all walks of life and all corners of our party.”
Before she was elected to public office, she was an attorney and a member of AABANY. Please join us in congratulating Congresswoman Meng on her election to the leadership of the Democratic National Committee.
