Mee Moua, the Executive Director of Asian Americans Advancing Justice, has been named to Washingtonian Magazine’s list of “most powerful women,” reports Sampan.
“As head of a nonprofit dedicated to immigration, census, and voting rights for Asian Americans, Moua testified in Senate hearings on immigration reform this past spring,” wrote the magazine.
Paul Lee, chair of the group’s board of directors, applauded the inclusion of Moua.
“Like the many impressive women on this list, Mee has blazed a trail for future women leaders, and it is clear that she will leave a lasting impact on all those who have had the opportunity to work alongside her and experience the power of her voice speaking on behalf of those whose voices would otherwise not be heard,” Lee said.
In August, Moua was among those who spoke on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial at the 50th anniversary celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s March on Washington.
