Chou was among the first members of the Asian Pacific American Bar Association of Pennsylvania (APABA-PA), when it was called the Asian American Bar Association of the Delaware Valley. Honoree Aasif Mandvi's Daily Show interview of a North Carolina GOP leader led to the official's resignation after his extraordinarily racist remarks.
