On November 18th, 2014, Asian Americans for Equality celebrated the organization’s 40th anniversary by hosting a gala. This milestone event, held at Tribeca Three Sixty in Manhattan, was an opportunity to recognize AAFE’s achievements and reflect on the progress the organization has made in working to achieve equality for all those in need. During the course of the gala, a range of speakers took to the podium to deliver speeches that touched on AAFE’s founding vision, its trailblazing community and economic development programs, and the organization’s model for impact and change that improves lives. All of these speeches can be viewed in full here.
