Giving Tuesday 2019

Today, on Giving Tuesday, ALA is proud to announce that Vilaska Nguyen will be our 43rd Anniversary Dinner emcee. We are grateful for his generous gift of time and talent to make our annual event especially memorable. For Vilaska, Senior Trial Attorney for the Office of the San Francisco Public Defender and comedian of five years, both the courtroom and the stage are important forums.

“I’m looking forward to emceeing for ALA because civic engagement is the best way to achieve justice and equality. My parents were Vietnam War refugees, and making them proud has been my daily motivation, which led me to a career as a public defender, community leader, and comedian. Changing the narrative means being visible, telling my story, and making my community proud.” –Vilaska Nguyen
