After more than 18 years on staff – 15 as Vice President – it is with mixed emotions that I share that I will be leaving Asian Americans Advancing Justice-Los Angeles at the end of April 2018. I am incredibly honored and proud to have helped lead Advancing Justice-LA’s fierce work for nearly two decades, fighting for immigrant and civil rights and building a progressive Asian American voice for justice.
