The Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund (AALDEF) will hold its Lunar New Year Gala and Justice in Action Awards Ceremony on Thursday, February 6, 2020 at Pier Sixty, Chelsea Piers in New York City. The recipients of the 2020 Justice in Action Awards are William F. Lee, partner at WilmerHale, and Viet Thanh Nguyen, Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist. Past award recipients include Congressman John Lewis, Yoko Ono, Preet Bharara and George Takei, to name just a few. Over 700 leaders of the civil rights, legal, business, and arts communities across the country are expected to attend.
