Inaugural NYC Celebration of Fred T. Korematsu Day
On Tuesday, January 30th, at the NYU Cantor Film Center, AABANY co-sponsored the inaugural Korematsu Day Celebration. January 30 is Fred Korematsu’s birthday. The event featured prominent speakers such as Jack Tchen, founding director of the A/P/A Institute at NYU; Daniel Dromm, an openly gay City Councilman who helped pass a resolution that established Jan. 30th as the Fred T. Korematsu Day of Civil Liberties and the Constitution in New York City, and Karen Korematsu, long-time activist and daughter of Fred Korematsu.
2018 Annual Dinner
On Wednesday, February 28, 2018, the Asian American Bar Association of New York hosted its Annual Dinner at Cipriani Wall Street. Our 2018 Annual Dinner drew more than 700 attorneys, judges, supporters and other business and community leaders. It is one of the signature events of the Asian Pacific American legal community. The theme for 2018 is Serving Our Community, Advancing Our Profession.
 22 Lewd Chinese Women: Chy Lung v. Freeman Reenactment 
On March 14, AABANY co-sponsored with the Federal Bar Association and the Fordham Law School APALSA a trial reenactment of 22 Lewd Chinese Women: Chy Lung v. Freeman in the Moot Court Room at Fordham Law School. The case recounted the legal battles of 22 Chinese women traveling alone to San Francisco in the 1870s who were detained and refused admission because they were deemed to be prostitutes. The case went all the way up to the United States Supreme Court and set precedent on principles of federalism and immigration that remain pertinent to the immigration debate today.
