Join the New York City and Beijing chapters of 85 Broads for a joint event as we celebrate Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month and diverse women succeeding in the face of adversity.

What does it take to lead? What if you’ve tried and failed, again and again? Join us for a conversation with Margaret Chin, the first Asian American woman elected to New York City Council, moderated by Kathy Hirata Chin, litigation partner at Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP, who concentrates her practice in health care and real estate litigation.

Margaret Chin is the first Asian American woman elected to New York City Council, and the first Chinese American to represent District 1, including Chinatown. Margaret ran and lost the primary election for the District 1 seat in 1991, 1993, and 2001. As an immigrant woman growing up in New York City, Margaret has had her own share of challenges, obstacles, and ultimately success in securing a council seat.

Arriving from Hong Kong in 1963 at the age of 9 along with her parents, Margaret has long been an advocate for immigrants. For more than 30 years, she has dedicated herself to public service to help immigrants, low income and working families. Margaret has twice been elected by her colleagues to serve as an executive member of the Black, Latino, and Asian Caucus of the Council. As a mother, teacher, community organizer and activist, she is committed to the advancement of women’s rights and equality through education, legislation and advocacy.
