San Francisco Event Details
David Biderman, Joan Haratani, Dale Minami, Edwin Prather, Priya Sanger, and Malcolm Yeung invite you to
Join The “STICK” Up for Goodwin! Movement
Join us on Tuesday, September 21, 2010, at 12:00 noon, for a statewide coordinated event at the Law Offices of Edwin Prather, 461 Bush Street, Suite 350, San Francisco, to support the confirmation of Professor Goodwin Liu to the 9th Circuit Federal Court of Appeals. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
In an effort to engage the grassroots, educate the mainstream about diversity on the bench, and change the media frame on Goodwin Liuâ?Ts nomination to the 9th Circuit, the Asian American Justice Center, National Asian Pacific American Bar Association and local Asian Pacific American (APA) bar organizations have launched a “Stickâ” Up for Goodwin! initiative and companion website (www.confirmnow.org).
The website provides the story behind the initiative, the lack of APAs in the federal judiciary, why Prof. Liu is important to the APA community, and other action items such as the nomination of Magistrate Judge Edward Chen for the District Court in the Northern District of California. The website also offers social media tools and traditional action alerts to help engage community members, such as uploading photos on how the stickers are used to increase visibility for the “Stick” Up for Goodwin! initiative and to build momentum towards confirming Goodwin Liu, as well as Ed Chen.
