Community Advocacy Promoting Awareness and Action

what we do

Community Advocacy

Community Advocacy aims to bring attention to issues of social justice and activism in Vietnamese and Vietnamese-American communities. We increase SVSA and Stanford awareness of these issues through various events such as Listen to the Silence, Black April, and regularly scheduled Bạn Nghĩ Sao (Vietnamese for “What Do You Think”) discussions. We hope to promote and cultivate thoughtful discussion and reflection on our own identities and how our communities are impacted.

The co-chairs of Community Advocacy are responsible for maintaining a connection between SVSA members and Vietnamese/API communities at large, planning and facilitating events to increase community awareness of Vietnamese/Vietnamese-American issues, and creating open environments for discourse.
