APABA Statement on the Confirmation of Julie Su as U.S. Deputy Secretary of Labor

Los Angeles County, CA - Asian Pacific American Bar Association of Los Angeles County (APABA) President Arnold Lee issued the following statement on the confirmation of Julie Su as U.S. Deputy Secretary of Labor:

"On behalf of the Asian Pacific American Bar Association of Los Angeles County, we congratulate Los Angeles County's own Ms. Julie Su, Secretary of the California Labor and Workforce Development Agency, on her confirmation by the U.S. Senate as the Deputy Secretary for the U.S. Department of Labor.

"Ms. Su has been on the forefront of protecting workers' rights with a decades-long extraordinary career in fighting against workplace discrimination and unfair labor practices as California Labor Secretary, California Labor Commissioner, and as a civil rights attorney at Asian Americans Advancing Justice - Los Angeles (formerly Asian Pacific American Legal Center). She is well-prepared to help move our nation forward in the Biden-Harris Administration.

"APABA honored Ms. Su in 2011 with its Public Service Award and in 2020 with its Trailblazer Award, both for her exceptional work in standing up for workers' rights and civil rights. Ms. Su continues to blaze the trail as the first Asian American woman to serve her new position.

"We look forward to Ms. Su's leadership in the U.S. Department of Labor on behalf of all Americans."
