This month marks the 30th anniversary of when a cargo ship ran aground in Queens, New York carrying 286 passengers who were attempting to escape China due to political or religious persecution. Lobach, who was president of the York County Bar Association at the time, spearheaded a pro bono immigration project which garnered national attention and became known as the “Golden Venture.”
In the third and final installment of our multipart series commemorating the Golden Venture, Managing Partner Jeff Lobach recounts the triumphs of the case and the lasting impact the case had on his family and the community. He also showcases his collection of Chinese folding art that was created by the refugees in prison and provides insights on what our society can take away from these events.
