KALAGNY President and Offit Kurman Attorney Karen Kim Speaks at KALAGNY’s 32nd Anniversary Gala Celebrating New York’s Korean American Community
For Immediate Release
New York, NY | August 6, 2018 The Korean American Lawyers Association of Greater New York (KALAGNY) recently celebrated its history and honored several members of the Korean American legal community at the organization’s 32nd Anniversary Gala, held June 21st at Gotham Hall. Offit Kurman attorney Karen Kim, who currently serves as KALAGNY’s President, gave remarks during the event. Offit Kurman was also a sponsor of Gala.
As an affiliate of the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association (NAPABA), KALAGNY is a professional membership organization that promotes professional development for members and provides legal support for the Korean American community. Through mentorship, pro bono clinics, strategic partnerships, and initiatives focusing on topics such as immigration and women’s leadership development, the organization seeks to address a broad range of issues impacting New York’s Korean American community. KALAGNY’s recent projects in service of its mission include immigration law workshops and information sessions, continuing legal education on emerging technologies such as blockchain and cryptocurrency, networking events for veteran and military attorney members and joint sponsorships with other prominent New York City bar associations.
The theme of KALAGNY’s 32nd Anniversary Gala was “Stepping into the Spotlight: Our Story, Our Time,” an idea that evokes the association’s long history of community engagement and advocacy by and for its members. In the words of Ms. Kim, “what sets KALAGNY apart is our members’ dedication to each other and the community.”
“The friendships and networks that are formed as we volunteer together have always been KALAGNY’s soul and strength,” she wrote in the President’s Message for the Gala. “The encouragement and support of our fellow members inspire us and give us courage to step into the spotlight to tell the many stories that belong to our Korean American community.”
