Asian Activist Group Calls For Support Of Judicial Nominee Goodwin Liu

Professor Goodwin Liu’s nomination to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit is a historic achievement for the Asian Pacific American community. Professor Liu’s nomination was voted on by the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday, May 13 and is now being considered by the full Senate. You can support Professor Liu by calling your Senators at 202-224-3121 and asking them to vote for Professor Liu.

Professor Liu’s confirmation is important because our community is significantly underrepresented in the federal courts. Out of approximately 875 federal judgeships, there are only 10 Asian Pacific American judges, and until the recent confirmation of Judge Denny Chin to the Second Circuit, none of them were serving in a federal appeals court. Professor Liu’s confirmation to serve as a federal appellate judge would be a monumental step in building a foundation for Asian Americans to strive and serve on all levels of the federal judicial system.

Professor Liu has also demonstrated a commitment to public service. He was a Senior Program Officer for Higher Education at the Corporation for National Service in Washington, D.C., where he helped launch the AmeriCorps program. He also served as a Special Assistant to the Deputy Secretary at the U.S. Department of Education, where he advised the advised the Secretary and Deputy Secretary on a wide range of legal and policy issues. Professor Liu also has private sector experience as a former member of the litigation practice of O’Melveny & Meyers in Washington, D.C.

In 2003, Professor Liu returned to his home state of California to join the faculty of UC Berkeley School of Law, one of the nation’s top law schools, and quickly earned tenure and promotion to Associate Dean in five years. Professor Liu was also elected to the prestigious American Law

We respectfully ask for your help in getting Professor Liu confirmed by the Senate. We have provided you with information about how you can contact your Senators to let them know how important Professor’s Liu’s confirmation is to our community. We hope that you review and distribute these materials and begin to let your community know about this historic nomination and how critical it is for us to have Professor Liu confirmed. With your help, we are confident Professor Liu’s confirmation can become a reality.

If you have any questions please contact Mary Kong at mkong@ocanational.org
