    The GAPABA Public Service Committee Presents

    The Perks of Public Service

    (Yes - those exist!)

    Wed | Aug. 4, 2021 | 6 PM ET

    Via Zoom & GAPABA Facebook Livestream

    The GAPABA Public Service Committee hopes to inspire the next generation of public service leaders. This event highlights the path that Judge Justin Anand (U.S. Magistrate Judge, Northern District of Georgia), Nekia Hackworth Jones (Atlanta Regional Director, U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission) and Sean Young (Legal Director, ACLU of Georgia) took from lucrative Big Law practices to public service leaders. We examine why the choose to go into public service in hopes of inspiring the next generation to do the same.

    The GAPABA New Lawyers | Law Students Committee


    SIGN UP BY MONDAY, AUG. 9, 2021

    This is a sign up for Attorney Mentors only.

    Law Students, please sign up with your local APALSAs!

    GAPABA Attorney Members, this is your time to GIVE BACK to the next generation! We're looking for 45 Attorney Mentors who will conduct Mock Virtual Interviews with Law Students:

    • We're looking for a variety of backgrounds and practices -- from BigLaw Partners and Associates, to Solo/Small Firms, Government, Non-profit, and In-house attorneys.
    • After sign up is completed on Monday, Aug. 9th, the New Lawyers/Law Students (NLLS) Committee will pair up attorneys with 1-2 law students to conduct and complete interviews between Aug. 16 - 31.
    • To simulate real world scenarios, law students are responsible for contacting attorneys directly to schedule an appropriate time for a mock virtual interview (or in person if you choose). Students will provide resumes, and attorneys will simulate a mock job interview, and provide constructive critiques.
    • If you are a LAW STUDENT, please get in touch with your local APALSA to sign up and participate -- slots are limited. 
    • QUESTIONS? Contact our NLLS Committee Co-Chairs Brenny Nguyen and Ruth McMullin at nlls@gapaba.orgIf your school APALSA has not coordinated with NLLS, please contact them.

    #GAPABAVolunteers with We Love BuHi!

    Feeding Families of Buford Highway

    Saturday | Aug. 21 | 9 AM - 2 PM ET

    SIGN UP DEADLINE: Fri, Aug. 6 | HS Kids & Up Welcome

    Center for Pan Asian Community Services

    3510 Shallowford Rd., Atlanta, GA 30341

    GAPABA's Community Service Committee joins forces with We Love BuHi to feed communities in need along the Buford Highway Corridor!

    • We need 25 volunteers to help organize, package, and distribute food to needy families. HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS AND UP are welcome.
    • Volunteers will gather at the Center for Pan Asian Community Services. The distribution will be held OUTDOORS.
    • Lunch will be provided!
    • Consider making a DONATION to We Love BuHi to FEED FAMILIES

    We Love BuHi is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to preserving the multicultural identity of Atlanta's Buford Highway, the epicenter of an evolving South, where immigrant communities thrive for generations. We Love BuHi launched the project "Feeding Families of Buford Highway" in early 2020 during the pandemic, when food insecurity hit hundreds of families. Many immigrant families on Buford Highway are essential workers, and COVID caused many breadwinners to lose their jobs. Communities were also marginalized because of lack of transportation and English fluency. With the spike in need for access to food, We Love Buhi committed to feeding 500 children and families with nutritious food every month for a full year, impacting nearly 22,000 individuals in 2021.
