APABA-DC 2021 Awards and Installation Reception
The Board of the Asian Pacific American Bar Association of the Greater Washington, D.C. Area, Inc. (APABA-DC) invites you to attend our APABA-DC 2021 Awards and Installation Reception on Wednesday, September 29, 2021 at 6:30 p.m., at District Winery, located at 385 Water St., SE, in Washington, DC.
We are thrilled to announce that the program will feature a conversation with United States Associate Attorney General Vanita Gupta and a presentation of APABA-DC’s 2021 awards in a short pre-recorded format. To make this event accessible to all participants, the pre-recorded program will be played at District Winery and streamed to online attendees at 7pm. Then, in-person attendees will enjoy a networking dinner with food and drinks at District Winery’s private event space, consisting of an outdoor patio and a spacious indoor room with direct access to the patio.
We will continue to monitor CDC and local DC guidelines and make necessary adjustments.
APABA-DC is the oldest and largest voluntary bar association for APA attorneys, judges, law professors, and other members of the legal profession in the DC area. We aim to serve our community by promoting the professional growth and advancement of our members, shedding light on issues affecting the APA legal community in the Washington, D.C. area, and enabling our members to work collaboratively with other leaders to serve the community at large.
Since the onset of the pandemic, we have been extremely active to help effectuate these goals and address pressing issues in our communities. We have pushed locally and nationally to call out anti-Asian hate incidents, initiated calls to address racial injustice, and made resources available to our members on this important topic. We have also urged our profession to remain focused on diversity, equity, and inclusion as it faces significant challenges stemming from the pandemic.
