Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month

May 18, 2018

This year on May 18, 2018, the office celebrated Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month with a lunch event and an interesting panel discussion with three distinguished speakers, Magistrate Judge Shashi Kewalramani of the U.S. District Court, Judge Rupa Goswami and Judge Rob Villeza of the Los Angeles Superior Court.

2018 Asian-American Pacific Islander Heritage Month

Coordinated by AUSA Puneet Kakkar - the office’s Asian American Pacific Islander Special Emphasis Program Manager, and co-chairs First Assistant United States Attorney Tracy Wilkison and AUSA Reema El-Amamy, the theme for this year’s commemoration was “Unite Our Vision by Working Together.” This theme is crucial to not only our celebration of the heritage and contributions of Asian Americans but for us as individual members of society and as public servants providing vital service to our national interest.

The Central District of California has one of the largest Asian-American and Pacific Islander constituencies in the country.  Our office is proud to serve these communities, and is proud that our talented staff and AUSAs reflect this diversity.
