KALAGNY Event - The 50th Anniversary of the Immigration and Nationality Act




On January 27, 2016, KALAGNY sponsored an event at the beautiful home of Shannon Chang Hanson to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Immigration and Nationality Act.  Although this important piece of legislation came to life with little fanfare back in 1965 (and again in 2015), we marked the milestone with personal stories from judges who would not be here today were it not for this historic act.  KALAGNY wishes to extend a special thank you to all of the judges and members who shared their stories.
