Colorado Changemakers Recognized at Asian Pacific American Bar Association Gala

3i Law’s Chuong Le and Grant Shibao have been honored with awards from the Asian Pacific American Bar Association of Colorado, recognizing their continued commitment to serving our community.

2023 Minoru Yasui Community Service Award Recipient: Chuong Le, 3i Law

Each year, APABA and the APABA Foundation award the Minoru Yasui Community Service Award.  The award goes to an individual or group whose community service exemplifies the achievement of Mr. Yasui, who challenged the laws applied to Japanese-Americans during World War II and advocated for civil rights and liberties of American citizens, regardless of race or ethnicity.

2023 Governor Ralph Carr Award Recipient: Grant Shibao, 3i Law

The Governor Ralph Carr Award is given to a young attorney who has exhibited a commitment to public service through public sector work or a substantial commitment to community service. Governor Carr went against popular anti-Japanese sentiment by urging Coloradans to welcome evacuees during the government’s decision to resettle Japanese-Americans from the West Coast to a camp at Amache near Granada, Colorado.  Carr’s advocacy for racial tolerance and for protection of the basic rights of Japanese-Americans are generally thought to have cost him his political career, including his ambition for election to the United States Senate.
