The Asian American Bar Association of the Greater Bay Area (“AABA”) grieves with the families and friends of the Orlando shooting victims. Our hearts ache for them and at the hatred and violence that unfolded at Pulse nightclub, which has served as a gathering place for the local LGBTQ community. AABA stands with and affirms the civil rights of all LGBTQ communities, and we reject any effort to exploit this tragedy to justify acts based on fear and intolerance against Muslim Americans.
For more information, contact AABA at email@example.com.
AABA has a long history of active involvement in civil rights issues and community service, and is dedicated to fostering the exchange of ideas and information among its members and the public. AABA is one of the largest local Asian American bar associations in the country, and counts lawyers, judges, law students, and community leaders among its members, representing the entire spectrum of political, social, and legal concerns in the San Francisco Bay Area.
