Welcome to Cal-APABA's 2020 Lobby Day & AnnUAL Gala!

Lobby Day (Tuesday, March 17): We are excited to announce the California Asian Pacific American Bar Association’s 3rd Annual Lobby Day will be held in Sacramento on March 17, 2020.  

Cal-APABA represents the interests of Asian Pacific American bar organizations and the over 14,000 APA attorneys statewide to promote justice and equality, advance legal and policy matters that impact the APA community, and enhance the professional development of its members.

Annual Statewide APA Gala (Monday, March 18):  We will host a Second Annual Gala on Monday, March 18, 2019, the day before Lobby Day.  .

The Gala and Lobby Day are a one of a kind opportunity to network with Asian Pacific American lawyers throughout California and meet with legislators to address priority issues such as API data dis-aggregation, judicial appointments, and others.  

Last year, the group met with the following Assemblymembers and Senators:

  • Assemblymember Al Muratsuchi
  • Assemblymember Ash Kalra
  • Assemblymember David Chiu, Chair of the California API Legislative Caucus
  • Assemblymember Kansen Chu
  • Assemblymember Mark Stone, Chair of the Assembly Judiciary Committee
  • Speaker Anthony Rendon
  • Senate President pro Tempore Toni Atkins

Register for either or both the Lobby Day and Gala here (https://cal-apaba.wildapricot.org/events).

What to expect:

We will open the day with a lobbying training that provides tips on how to effectively advocate for our issues.  Then we will meet with members of the API Legislative Caucus and other legislators.  For your convenience, we will schedule all appointments and match you with your legislative representative.

In the evening, we will host a reception where you will have the distinct opportunity to meet and talk to members of the legislature in a more informal environment.

Travel arrangements:

Attendees are responsible for their own travel arrangements. Please plan to stay for the entire day. We will book appointments with Legislators from 1 PM - 4:30 PM.
