AIISF Receives Leadership Award

Angel Island Immigration Station Foundation was proud to be honored at the Asian Americans for Community Involvement (AACI) 2018 Gala. Our Board Members accepted the Gordon N. Chan Leadership Award on behalf of the organization.

In his remarks at the event, Board President Buck Gee said, “The mission of the Foundation is simple – to remind this nation that the unifying thread in our immigration past, both legal and illegal, is that decent, hard-working men and women – the wealthy and poor, the educated and less educated, the skilled and unskilled, Christian and non-Christian, white and non-white – come to this country to seek a better life for themselves and their children.  And the lesson here is that this is the greatness of America.”
