Call for Volunteers: APAWLA's Yes on Prop 16 Committee

This November, we will have the choice to bring back affirmative action and equal opportunity for all Californians. Prop 16 provides a countermeasure against gender discrimination and systemic racism, so that each person regardless of his/her/their gender or race gets a fair shake. APAWLA stands in solidarity with Opportunity for All, a multiracial coalition led by California civil rights leaders fighting for the passage of Prop 16.

In the mood for some civic engagement? Sign up for APAWLA's Yes on Prop 16 committee, and let's work together to pass Prop 16!

Email aapi4prop16@gmail.com to join the committee.

Congratulations, Christine!

APAWLA congratulates Christine Gonong on her appointment to the State Bar of California’s Board of Trustees.

Young Lawyers and Law Students (YLLS) Informal Happy Hour

Join other YLLS members in an informal get-together over Zoom. Social distancing does not mean we cannot remain connected in other ways. This zoom session provides a forum for law students and young lawyers to share their experiences, important resources, and helpful tips. It is also a safe space for you to share any questions, anxieties, and concerns. We hope you can drop by even if you can only stay a short while. Appearances by emotional support dogs and cats (if we can wrangle them to the camera) may be made!

5:30 PM to 7 PM
