On March 12th, AAFE staff and supporters gathered for the organization’s 41st Annual Lunar New Year banquet at Jing Fong Restaurant in Chinatown, Manhattan. In keeping with the event’s tradition, AAFE held its Dream of Equality awards ceremony.  This is what the Dream of Equality awards symbolize, as described in AAFE’s banquet e-journal:

Each year, AAFE honors individuals and organizations that have made exceptional contributions in the struggle for equality. Working towards the dream of equality is no small task. It requires ideals, vision, commitment, hard work and an unshakable determination to succeed. It requires a desire for transformational change, a willingness to confront adversity, and the audacity to find creative solutions. Join us tonight in celebrating those with the courage and conviction to act on their dreams.
