Bethany currently serves as director of the Asian Outreach Unit (AOU) at Greater Boston Legal Services (GBLS). GBLS’s mission is to provide free civil legal aid to help individuals and families achieve justice and meet basic needs such as food, security, safety and adequate shelter.

AALAM is excited that Bethany has received this well-deserved recognition and honor.
