LGBTQIA+ Network of the National Filipino American Lawyers Association (NFALA) and in collaboration with the NFALA Foundation request your presence for our very first NFALA-ganza!, a virtual NFALA Pride Event which will be held on June 25, 2021. 6PM-8PM PST. Funds raised from the event will provide law school scholarships for LGBTQIA+ Fil-Am students.
NFALA-ganza! will be a 2 hour virtual event that will bring together attorneys, judges, professors, and law students from across the country to celebrate all that we are and the promise of who we have yet to become. The event, hosted by NYC drag queen extraordinaire Divasoria, will feature speakers from the LGBTQIA+ community, including: David Lat, author and legal commentator; Wesley Bizzell, LGBT Bar President; Maria Hinayon, UCSF Complaints Resolution Officer and first-generation Filipina transwoman; and Joey Badua, gender fluid Filipinx immigrant representing low-income clients providing direct legal services. As we celebrate, our speakers will provide insight into the unique issues faced by Filipino/a/x attorneys and law students of color.
Of course, there will be lots of entertainment, including various lip sync performances and pre-recorded video montages featuring NFALA’s own homegrown talent.
The theme for our inaugural NFALA-ganza! is “Challenge Accepted.” Join us, accept the challenge, and become a sponsor!
Please join NFALA-ganza! LGBTQIA+ attorneys and allies in celebrating and promoting access to justice by supporting law students and bringing awareness to the unique issues faced by queer attorneys of color.
