Press Release: Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer and AABANY to Host Panel Discussion with Acting US Attorney Joon Kim, Judge Denny Chin, and Congresswoman Grace Meng

Congratulations to Grace Meng

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.
