An Evening with Chief Justice of California Tani Cantil-Sakauye
A Conversation on Civics with Chief Justice of California Tani Cantil-Sakauye
March 9, 2017 @ 6:00PM, McGeorge School of Law, Sacramento
The ABAS LAW FOUNDATION is celebrating 20 years of law-related educational and charitable works in greater Sacramento's Asian/Pacific community. We have put on workshops including immigration assistance, employment discrimination law, and election procedures; we have given scholarships to community-conscious activist law students through our annual golf tournament; we have supported activities such as the Hmong Mediation Project, and we are continuing to administer a $47,400 federal research grant that is leading to a book on World War II's notorious Tule Lake concentration camp.
In 2017 we are putting on a series of speakers and events to provoke discussion and to inform the public on often-overlooked subjects, including civic responsibility, our unjust bail system, human trafficking, speaking out under extreme conditions at Tule Lake, and discriminatory and unconstitutional governmental actions.
