About The Event
The First Fifteen: How Asian American Women Became Federal Judges tells the stories of the first fifteen. In the process, it recounts remarkable tales of Asian women overcoming adversity and achieving the American dream, despite being the daughters of a Chinese garment worker, Japanese Americans held in internment camps during World War II, Vietnamese refugees, and penniless Indian immigrants. Yet The First Fifteen also explores how far Asian Americans and women still have to go before the federal judiciary reflects America as a whole. Together, we'll discuss this important book on May 18, 2022, from 6-7 PM.
APAWLA will purchase 15 copies of The First Fifteen: How Asian American Women Became Federal Judges, for APAWLA members. Event is FREE for the first 15 RSVPs (by April 22, 2022).
APAWLA Lifetime Members will receive priority registration. By registering, you'll receive a copy of the book and a Zoom link for the May 18, 2022 virtual event.
