Taking our celebration online has opened our Gala to attendees from around the world! Guests will be able to log in from anywhere to enjoy our WEEK-LONG celebration, honoring CASL’s co-founder and former President Bernie Wong with a Lifetime Achievement Award. As co-chair of CASL’s Advisory Board and organizational supporter for nearly two decades, Emmy award-winning anchor Judy Hsu of ABC-7 will be returning as the evening’s emcee.
The launch will celebrate the resistance and resilience of Filipino women, particularly in the current political climate of Rodrigo Duterte and Donald Trump, two macho-fascist presidents who have openly condoned and defended sexual assault and violence against women.
Our banquet will be an opportunity to celebrate the victories of the past year and ensure we are able to continue doing vital political engagement and advocacy to support our community especially with the fast approaching primary elections.
