Defend American Ideals’ vice chair, Betty Chu, will speak at a policy briefing titled “Ending Discrimination in Public Contracting.”

Sponsored by the Pacific Legal Foundation, the event will be held virtually on April 18, 2024, at 4:00 p.m. EDT/1:00 p.m. PDT.

Attorney, political leader, banker, real estate developer, and trailblazer among Americans of Asian descent, Chu is former mayor and two-term city council member of Monterey Park, California; the first American woman of Chinese descent to co-found and run a bank; and the first female Chinese lawyer in Southern California. In the 2020 elections, Betty served as honorary co-chair of the No on Prop 16 campaign, which defeated by a landslide an effort to restore state-sponsored racial and gender preferences in California.

Other speakers featured at the policy briefing include Pacific Legal Foundation attorneys Daniel Dew, Jim Manley, and Andrew Quinio.
