Their significant, multi-year contributions to APALC have helped build APALC's indigent legal services capacity, which provides legal representation for domestic violence, child custody and immigration matters to those who otherwise could not afford it, said an APALC release.

 "Shirley and I are tremendously honored to receive this prestigious award from such as well-respected organization as APALC," Walter Wang said. "We are deeply committed to APALC's ideas and pledge to remain active in this important organization and to pursue its worthy goals."

APALC's 2010 Public Service Award was presented to the Wangs by APALC President and Executive Director Stewart Kwoh. Actors Lynn Chen from the feature film Saving Face and Iqubal Theba from the popular hit television show Glee served as the Mistress and Master of Ceremonies.
