Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

The AILA San Diego Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee is dedicated to helping our chapter members take an immigrant-centered approach to representation.  We represent incredibly diverse migrants who come from different cultures and have different customs.  We need to ensure that our clients are being treated with respect and dignity while working through a system that demhumanizes them.

Our goal is also to uplift the chapter's diverse members and recommend them for speaking engagements at AILA National and to hold leadership positions both at a local and national level.

Finally, we hope to meet with affinity bar organizations to establish relationships and partner on events aimed at diverse immigrants.

Our committee members are:  Aude Ruffing, Maria Chavez, Ashley Orjiako, Yiwen Hao, and Lauren Cusitello.  Please contact us at dei@sdaila.org
