AAJC Reception Inspires Immigrants
A decent crowd gathered at renowned immigration lawyer George Willy’s house in Sugarland, Texas on Thursday early evening for a reception with Mee Moua, President and Executive Director of the Asian American Justice Center (AAJC), and George R. Willy, Secretary of AAJC’s Board of Directors.
AAJC, is a member of the Asian American Center for Advancing Justice, one of the nation’s leading experts on issues of importance to the Asian American community. AAJC works to advance the human and civil rights of Asian Americans and build and promote a fair and equitable society for all. Among its affiliates are the Asian Pacific American Legal Center in Los Angeles, the Asian Law Caucus in San Francisco and the Asian American Institute in Chicago.
The center has enacted a sweeping range of programs on critical national issues that enrich, enhance and serve our communities all across the country. The evening was very inspiring, enriched with immigrant stories of anger and frustration that many have had to deal with as a child. Mee Moua shared her story with the audience about how she was ridiculed by her neighbors and how organizations like AAJC have been able to serve as a platform to those who need assistance and a support group.
Spotted at the house Gene Wu, Munir Ibrahim, Neeta Sane, Mona Parikh, Jagdip Ahluwalia, Sam Merchant, Salim Khassa and others.
