 “As NASABA represents the interests of the South Asian community at large on a variety of social and legal issues, it’s both natural and important that our leadership participates in these kinds of events as both a monitor and a voice”, said NASABA President and California Attorney Ms. Jolsna John. “We’ve recently reached out to the White House and formally commented on our need for more South Asian representation in the Federal Judiciary and are pleased to be a partner and resource for the President on issues that affect both our ethnic community and our interests as Americans”, continued John, “We look forward to this event and to introducing White House staff to our leaders later the same day. We have tremendous resources to offer the country and are thrilled to be able to do so”.

Assistant to the President and Cabinet Secretary for the United States Chris Lu will also be addressing NASABA leaders at NASABA’s annual Leadership Retreat Welcome Reception (Friday, October 14th, 6-8pm). A variety of commissioners and the President’s Executive Director of the White House Initiative on AAPIs, Kiran Ahuja, will also be in attendance at the Welcome Reception. The reception is sponsored for NASABA by the law firm of Ballard Spahr, LLP.

Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders play an important role in driving economic growth in communities across the U.S. This event will raise awareness on the Administration’s efforts to create economic opportunities for entrepreneurs and small businesses to create jobs. The event will also focus on the Administration’s housing priorities, including affordability and foreclosure prevention.

Attendees at the Town Hall event include NASABA leadership and the President’s Advisory Commission on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in addition to Senior Administration officials from the White House and other federal agencies.
