Ming will join the team at the Asylum Seeker Advocacy Project (ASAP) to build the first asylum-seeker-led systemic reform program in the United States.
By connecting remotely with ASAP’s over 100,000 members who are asylum seekers, she will work with them to enact systemic change through litigation, policy advocacy, and media communications. During law school, Ming organized student trips to volunteer at the border in Tijuana and the family detention center in Dilley, Texas. She spent her summers working directly with asylum seekers and advocating for their rights through internships with Al Otro Lado and Innovation Law Lab. In Los Angeles, Ming joined the local coalition to pursue sanctuary measures in LA County and represented clients through the UCLA Immigrant Family Legal Clinic. A gosei from Honolulu, Hawaiʻi, Ming graduated with specializations in Critical Race Studies and Public Interest Law and Policy from UCLA School of Law, which sits on Tongva land.
