Stewart Kwoh speaking at the Asian Law Caucus gala.
Three Los Angeles organizations honored President and Executive Director of the Asian Pacific American Legal Center (APALC) Stewart Kwoh this April.
On April 5, the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles [CHIRLA], an organization “serving and empowering low-income immigrant workers and youth,” honored Kwoh for “his inspirational leadership for the immigrant communities of Los Angeles.”
The Korean Churches for Community Development [KCCD] selected Kwoh as one of five Heroes of Hope “who have best exemplified the enduring spirit of our city to recover and rebuild after the Los Angeles Riots.” They were honored at KCCD’s April 29 Commemorative Services on the 20th anniversary of the Los Angeles riots. KCCD founder and CEO Hyepin Im said, “Stewart did much to help the powerless and voiceless Korean business owners - many whom had been victimized a multitude of times. He fought for the store owners to receive insurance claims and compensation, and gave them a measure of hope in a very difficult time.”
