About the speakers

Ali Golchin is a local attorney handling immigration and accident cases since 1990. He is an AIAP member. He often meets with other minority community leaders and law enforcement officials and appears before the media addressing issues affecting our community.

James McElroy is a longtime civil rights lawyer in private practice in San Diego. He began his association with the SPLC in the early 1990s, when he volunteered to lead the SPLC's legal efforts to collect the $12.5 million verdict rendered against a white supremacist for his role in the murder of an Ethiopian student. McElroy has spent more than 25 years taking on civil rights cases in San Diego. He served as chairman of the SPLC Board of Directors from 2003 to 2009.

Hanif Mohebi is raised in the heart of Silicon Valley, he is the former Director of a Communication Consulting Firm in San Jose; he has held various directing positions at for-profit and non-profit organizations. At a young age, he was exposed to both United States and United Nations community dignitaries which has influenced his character. He has appeared in both local and national media outlets bridging the gap between minorities and the mainstream Americans. In a quest for this dream, he joins CAIR San Diego, as an Executive Director, with glowing recommendations and over a decade of community service.
