The purpose of the KABANC Endorsements Committee is to promote the appointment of qualified judicial candidates to the federal and state judiciary and other governmental positions who have demonstrated a commitment to the Asian Pacific American community or to any other minority or disenfranchised group. We evaluate potential candidates as well as identify and encourage qualified Asian Americans to apply for judicial positions. 

KABANC’s Judicial Endorsements Committee actively seeks out worthy candidates for nomination and endorsements. We welcome your inquiries about the judicial application process or request for endorsement.  If you are interested in KABANC’s endorsement, or are contemplating applying for the bench in the near future, please contact KABANC’s Judicial Endorsements Committee Chair, Shinhong Byun at shinhongbyun@gmail.com

Alternatively, if you know someone in our community who deserves recognition for his or her contributions, or a candidate who deserves KABANC’s support, please contact the Judicial Endorsements Committee. 

We invite you to review KABANC’s Endorsement Policy for judicial candidates.
