Concerned members of the South Asian community gathered pool side to discuss justice for Asian American families at the beautiful home of noted immigration lawyer George Willy on Monday November 9, 2009.
The Asian American Justice Center, based in Washington DC, is one of the organizations in the United States dedicated to protecting the interests of Asian Americans including the South Asian community. AAJC, over the years, has battled prejudices against Asian Americans in the U.S. by lobbying heavily for legislation on hate crimes and other legislation affecting the community.
The purpose for the gathering was to welcome Karen Narasaki, the President and Executive Director of AAJC and to kick-off a campaign in support of AAJC.
George Willy, in an exclusive interview, expressed his dissatisfaction regarding the incident where Bollywood super star Sharukh Khan was detained at Newark airport.
