On May 21, 2014, the United States Attorney’s Office for the Central District of California and the Federal Public Defender’s Office co-hosted a special diversity event to mark the annual celebration of Asian-American Pacific Islander Heritage Month. The full-capacity event was held during the lunch hour in the Training Room inside the USAO’s Civil Division. Acting First Assistant United States Attorney Stephanie Yonekura introduced the keynote speaker, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Larry Cho, a former Assistant United States Attorney and Chief of General Crimes in Los Angeles. Judge Cho’s heartfelt words about the significance of culture, public service, and family were warmly received. Collective efforts by Special Emphasis Program Managers Cedina Kim and Ivy Wang, along with members of the Office’s Diversity Committee, made the occasion possible. Finally, all of the potluck contributors and food donors deserve special thanks for providing the food and beverages which were thoroughly enjoyed by the guests
