Bernard Parks, Sr., Retired City Councilman and Retired L.A.P.D. Chief:
“Grace Yoo is a fighter, whom I had the pleasure of going into battle with to fight corruption during the city’s last redistricting process. While those who needlessly sliced up communities may have had the votes back then, today the FBI— through raids and search warrants— has an emerging truth on their side.”
Grace Yoo is a dedicated community advocate who has been at the forefront of legal battles for fair representation both in City Hall and nationwide. She has helped bring lawsuits against the City of Los Angeles to help hold them accountable for practices such as race-based redistricting and environmental violations. She continues to devote her legal career to advocating for people and communities to help navigate the legal system and shed light on governmental bureaucracy. In addition to her legal work, Grace has helped empower local communities through her roles as Executive Director of both the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association (NAPABA) and the Korean American Coalition (KAC)
City Council District 10 is located in Los Angeles and includes the communities of Arlington Heights, Koreatown, Mid-City, Olympic Park, Palms, South Robertson, West Adams, West Pico and Wilshire Center.
