Filipino American History Month – Wards Cove Packing Co. v. Atonio (1989) Discussion at UC Berkeley Law

The Pilipinx American Law Society at Berkeley Law cordially invites you to their culmination event for Filipino American History Month: a panel conversation in commemoration of the 30th anniversary of the seminal US Supreme Court case, Wards Cove Packing Co. v. Atonio (1989), which involved Filipino laborers in the Alaska salmon canneries. The event will take place ‪on Tuesday, October 29, 6-7:30 PM, in Berkeley Law Room 100‬. Filipino food will be available for dinner, while supplies last. It will be catered by Sampaguita Fil-Am Cuisine, in Alameda. We will also have pastries from Brown Butter SF, a Filipino-owned pastry start-up.

The four panelists are as follows: Bill Tamayo, District Director of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission; Cindy Domingo, Coalition Organizer; Nemesio Domingo, Coalition Organizer; and David Della, Class Member of the Wards Cove litigation. The program will include an introductory address on the case delivered by Berkeley Law PALS alumnus Antonio Raimundo, a moderated Q&A, and an opportunity for audience Q&A.

This event would not be possible without the generosity of our co-sponsors, to whom we are immensely grateful: the Berkeley Journal of Employment & Labor Law (BJELL), the Filipino Bar Association of Northern California (FBANC), Skadden Arps LLP, the Asian Pacific American Law Student Association (APALSA), Farella Braun + Martel LLP, Crowell & Moring LLP, and Bryan Schwartz Law.
