2020 Virtual Banquet


Special Thanks to our Banquet Partners:

















SABAW invites you to join our virtual Banquet on October 15, 2020 at 6 p.m. via Zoom.  Our Banquet will allow us to continue to serve the law students who rely on our scholarships, the community members who rely on our clinics, and our colleagues who rely on our programming, including virtual panel discussions and the Joint Minority Mentorship Program.  You can purchase tickets here.  We have significantly lowered ticket prices and have provided opportunities for donations, which are described in an attachment.


We are excited to announce that Anita Khandelwal, Director of Public Defense at DPD will be our guest speaker for the evening.  Ms. Khandelwal is at the forefront of criminal justice reform in King County and a South Asian woman leading the largest public defender agency in our State.  We look forward to hearing her unique perspective on the challenges 2020 has created and/or exacerbated for reform work and the ways in which 2020 has amplified the urgency of criminal justice reform. 


Commitment to Solidarity – South Asian Americans are indebted to the Black community, who has fought tirelessly for civil rights for all minorities.  Recognizing the need to support efforts to dismantle systemic racism in the justice system and in our society, we prioritized awarding our public service scholarships to students and lawyers who are working to address systemic racism in our justice system.  Join our Banquet to learn more about this year’s scholarship recipients and their incredible work!


Zoom Breakout Rooms – Following the Banquet programming, you can participate in any one of our exciting virtual breakout rooms.  While purchasing your ticket, you can indicate which of the following room you’d like to participate in (for mobile users, we will follow up for room selection via email):
