Angela Hsu Joins AAPI Panel, ‘Fighting with Hope and Allyship’
BCLP Counsel Angela Hsu will participate in the panel “Surge in Anti-Asian Violence: Fighting with Hope and Allyship.” This panel will discuss the rise of anti-Asian hate crimes from March 2020 to March 2021, actions that various organizations are taking to address this crisis, and how we can all participate in educating ourselves and taking action.
Alongside her active transactional practice, Hsu serves as the president of the Georgia Asian Pacific American Bar Association (APABA). She has been deeply involved in the legal community’s response to the March 16 killings of eight people at Asian American-owned businesses in the Atlanta metropolitan and to the overall rise in anti-Asian hate crimes across the nation. She has played a leading role in speaking with national news outlets on the topic, and helped establish the Atlanta 3/16 Survivors Fund and the AAPI Crime Victims and Education Fund.
Joining Hsu will be BJ Pak, partner with Alston & Bird LLP and former U.S. attorney; Congresswoman Young Kim; Tai Park, partner with White & Case LLP and Co-Founder and Co-Chair for the Alliance for Asian American Justice; and moderators Jeff Tang, VP of intellectual property at Blackrock, and Kate Dugan, associate general counsel of Energizer Holdings.
