Building upon the legacy of the Asian Pacific American Legal Center

30 Stories for 30 Years

Last year, we began our “30 Stories” retrospective series in celebration of our 30th anniversary and as a way to highlight our fantastic alumni – staff, board, volunteers. We are continuing these stories because of their popularity and because our alumni helped build our organization into what it is today, a respected force for civil rights and social justice.

In the coming months, we’ll keep posting these recollections to our blog. Please be on the lookout for them -- and join us in our continuing celebration of three decades of working with and on behalf of Asian American and Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander communities of southern California.

As they are released, each story will be listed below:
