The Speaker Series is part of the Foundation’s two decades of law-related educational and charitable works in greater Sacramento's Asian/Pacific community. Each year, the Foundation awards scholarships to encourage community-conscious activist future lawyers. The Foundation has supported activities such as the Hmong Mediation Project and the CAIR immigration legal clinic; has produced numerous law-related workshops and programs; and has administered a federal research grant on World War II's notorious Tule Lake concentration camp.
The first two Speaker Series years brought A Conversation on Civics with Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye; Empowering the Community and Educating the Public through Law with Dale Minami; the Sacramento premiere of Konrad Aderer's documentary Resistance at Tule Lake; Bystander Intervention Training with the Council on American Islamic Relations; a panel on Bail Reform in California; and a screening of Sold, a human trafficking story, with a panel discussion on human trafficking. The Foundation screened the Sacramento premiere of Abby Ginzberg's documentary And Then They Came for Us, attended by 800, with a distinguished discussion panel and a social action networking session to encourage further organizing.
