Jul 24 How Strong Love Can Be
Vanuyen Pham

Being political and advocating for change is not exactly what my parents wanted for me. What they don’t understand is that I want to do this because they can’t. I want to be sure their stories and the stories of my community are heard. I am honored to be here at SEARAC, where I am surrounded by people who also care deeply about advocating for their communities.

As board members of SEARAC, we have seen the devastation that deportation causes in the lives of Southeast Asian American families. But we have also seen the hope and joy that comes when SEARAC's powerful partnerships with the #ReleaseMN8 campaign and other families help to keep these families together.
