Speaking to an audience of over 100 guests comprising lawyers, activists, and community leaders, C-100 member Frank Wu, Chancellor and Dean of UC Hastings, shared his insights on a wide range of topics pertaining to Asian Americans and the law, including civic engagement, Asian American activism, and the value of a legal education.  “Even if Asian Americans banded together, we are still a minority,” Dr. Wu emphasized, “it’s only by building bridges and connecting to other groups and building a majority, can you win office and change the world.”

Stewart Kwoh provided opening remarks, Charlie Woo served as emcee, and Brian Sun, Partner at Jones Day, moderated the discussion.  C-100 member Lily Lee Chen and Acting Executive Director Holly Chang attended the event along with C-100 Leadership Mentoring Program alumni.
