Starn O’Toole Marcus & Fisher Director, Former Hawaii Attorney General, Keynote Speaker for NAFSA, April 26, 1230pm

March 27, 2019

Starn O’Toole Marcus & Fisher Director and former Hawaii Attorney General Doug Chin will be a keynote speaker at the NAFSA Hawaii/Pacific District Spring Conference on April 26, 1230pm at  the Waikiki Vista, 2241 Kapiolani Blvd.  The conference theme is "Embracing Diversity and Multiculturalism”.   

Mr. Chin will present his views on the past, present and future of travel bans and what action schools and states can do to address the issue. Mr. Chin was the first attorney general in the nation to successfully obtain an injunction to stop the President’s second and third executive orders banning travel from certain Muslim-majority countries, a case that received national exposure and was eventually heard by the United States Supreme Court. For his efforts, Mr. Chin in 2017 was recognized by the Hawaii State Bar Association as its “Champion for Social Justice”, and by the Council on American Islamic Relations as a “Defender of Liberty”.

The event is limited to registrants and invited guests.
