ABOUT US

WHO ARE WE

WE ARE VIETLEAD

VietLead was founded by Vietnamese and allied community members who had a vision for sustainability, self-determination, and “taking on” the work of building what we want.

Collectively, VietLead’s leadership has over 20 years of experience working in: Vietnamese and Southeast Asian communities in the region; patient navigation & translation; ESL & Citizenship classes; advocacy and leadership training for adults; voter engagement and ballot initiative training; agricultural training; farming; youth organizing; community organizing and the list goes on…

WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO

OUR DECISION

We decided to build out a worker-led self-directed non-profit, with a close advisory board, and board of directors that worries specifically about fiscal and legal matters. We decided to build an organization with a non-profit overhead, that is egalitarian, with horizontal decision making powers, and with a pay-system that takes into considering living-wage; equity; location; etc. This is our vision, and we are building towards it.

VISION

Our vision is to build an organization that focuses on sustainability, and self-determination for the Vietnamese and Southeast Asian communities in the region.

CONSTRUCTION

We decided to build out a worker-led self-directed non-profit, with a close advisory board, and board of directors that worries specifically about fiscal and legal matters.

SUCCESS

This is our vision, and we are building towards it. Until the Vietnamese and Southeast Asian communities in the region succeed we won’t stop.

OUR TEAM

VietLEAD is a new Vietnamese community-based organization that focuses on intergenerational building through leadership development, community engagement, culture & arts, and health promotion work.
