The Honorable Pamela K. Chen is a Federal District Judge in the Eastern District of New York. She was nominated to the federal bench by President Barack Obama and sworn in March 2013. Judge Chen is the first openly LGBTQ-identified Asian-American federal judge, and the second Chinese female federal district court judge. She participates in numerous community programs, including the New York City Bar Association’s Enhance Diversity in the Profession Committee and the Sonia & Celia Sotomayor Judicial Internship Program as a board member. Before joining the bench, Judge Chen was an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Criminal Division of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York. Between 1991 and 1998, Judge Chen was a trial attorney in the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice, where she investigated and litigated institutional reform cases to protect the rights of individuals confined to state and local facilities, such as prisons, nursing homes, and centers for people with developmental disabilities and mental illness.

Judge Chen has received numerous awards in connection with her human trafficking work, including the Sanctuary for Families’ Abely Award, the U.S. Department of Justice Director’s Award, the Freedom Network’s Paul and Sheila Wellstone Award, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Foundation’s “Partnerships in Public Safety Award”, and the Susan B.
