As LISC marks the beginning of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, assistant general counsel Ted Shen reflects on the imperative of allyship, and the extraordinary life and example of Grace Lee Boggs—philosopher, activist and exemplary ally in the struggle for racial and economic equity.
