The Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month celebrates the history, culture, traditions and contributions of Asian Americans in the United States. The Queens District Attorney Office is celebrating its third Annual Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Celebration on May 17, 2018.
As part of each of our celebrations, Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown selects one distinguished honoree every year to recognize for their contributions and public service to the community in Queens County. DA Brown is proud to be honoring former Presiding Justice Randall T Eng for his service as a former Queens County Assistant District Attorney, as a former State Supreme Court Judge sitting in Queens and as a member of the Second Department Appellate Division where District Attorney Brown also had the distinction of serving.
Elected officials, members of the judiciary, as well as members of several New York City legal associations will join QDA staff at the ceremony which is approximately one and half to two hours long. The program will include a few speeches where several members of our Office will speak about the significance of celebrating Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month. Appetizers and refreshments will be served. District Attorney Brown will then present Randall T. Eng with the QDA Public Service Excellence Award and Justice Eng will be asked to say a few words.
