AABANY Litigation, Membership, and Prosecutors’ Committees Host Happy Hour at Peachy’s

On Tuesday night, the AABANY Litigation, Membership, and Prosecutors’ Committees hosted a happy hour at Peachy’s, a wonderful AAPI-owned venue in the heart of Chinatown.

The happy hour provided a chance for members and guests of the three committees to reconnect (or connect for the first time) with friends, old and new. It was a welcome opportunity to socialize over delicious craft cocktails and appetizers, especially for those starved for in-person events after the long pandemic.    

This event was a great kick-off to the new fiscal year. Thank you for all who joined us for the event, and we hope to see more of you at future events.

Please join the first quarterly meeting of the AABANY Litigation Committee, taking place via Zoom on May 31, to meet the Co-Chairs, hear plans for the upcoming year, share ideas for programs, and learn how you can get more involved. Register by May 30 here.

Prosecutors’ Committee Meets Up at Leaf Rooftop Lounge in Flushing on June 24

After a long year and a half, the Prosecutors’ Committee, headed up by Joseb Gim and David Chiang, finally hosted an in-person gathering at the Leaf Rooftop Lounge in Flushing. We had a perfect location with a great view and amazing weather.

Members of the Queens, Brooklyn, Manhattan and Nassau DA’s offices were joined by a member of the Family Court Division of the NYC Law Department.

We got together to discuss our group and individual efforts to combat Anti-Asian Hate and increase our voice in our communities.

We also welcomed two law school interns, a recent college graduate, and a former ADA who now works at the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.

It was a great opportunity for old friends to reconnect and introduce some new people to the group. We’ve faced a really tough year and a half since 2020, but together we recharged each other to keep fighting the good fight. We’re looking forward to the next gathering later this summer!!!
