Do is a civil rights attorney specializing in employment discrimination, harassment, retaliation, police/prison abuse, and international human rights.
Do was a member of the Black-Korean Alliance, a coalition of African American and Korean American community leaders dedicated to resolving conflicts between Korean merchants and African American customers. In the wake of sa-i-gu, he also worked with the Korean American Inter-Agency Council to provide riot relief efforts to Korean American victims. From 1993-1999, Do founded and directed the Korean American Youth Leadership Program, nurturing leadership among high school and college students. Seeing the need to build coalitions with other communities, Do also founded the Multiethnic Youth Leadership Collaborative, which works with youth in Pico-Union, South Los Angeles, and Koreatown. He is also a board member of the Los Angeles Korean Festival Foundation and an advisory board member of Encompass, a nonprofit dedicated to sparking compassion and an appreciation of differences among California teenagers.
Do graduated from Harvard University with a joint degree in Afro-American Studies and Sociology in 1993 and went on to receive his J.D. from the UCLA School of Law in 2002. He immigrated to Los Angeles at the age of three and has been a life-long resident of Koreatown.
