One of the reasons I love providing flowers for special events is the amazing people I get to meet and work alongside. I was fortunate enough to be able to work with the Asian American Law Caucus to help find budget-friendly centerpieces for their annual dinner. They decided to purchase purple and white orchids, which I thought was a wise choice, and created a simple, elegant atmosphere.
This year, the Asian American Law Caucus was celebrating their 44-year legacy of advancing civil rights. The organization and its supporters have worked steadfastly to support a movement that prevents immigrants from being detained and deported, upholds the rights of low-income tenants, helps workers recover stolen wages and stands up against the government trampling the rights of Arab, Muslim, Middle Eastern and South Asian communities.
The dinner also provided an opportunity to honor amazing individuals and organizations, including Covington & Burling LLP, Stand With Nan-Hui Campaign, Eric Quezada and Kimpo Ngoi. It was such an honor to contribute to this important event.
