Jul 28 Meet Vy Luu - Our Summer Intern from San Diego
Vy Luu

My name is Vy Luu and I am a Research Intern at SEARAC this summer! I am a rising senior studying Sociology at Stanford University.  I was born in Vietnam but moved to San Diego when I was seven, where my mom reunited with her family who had come to the US in the years following the Vietnam War. I’m the youngest of three children, and my family still calls me “Bé,” which means “Baby” in Vietnamese.

Jul 11 Meet Peng Xue - Our Summer Intern from Wisconsin
Peng Xue Vang

My name is Peng Xue Vang and this summer I am SEARAC’s Educational Policy intern.  I was born and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and therefore I am obligated to love two things; the Green Bay Packers and cheese. I am a first-generation Hmong American college student and recently graduated from the University of Wisconsin - Madison with a double major in International Studies and Languages of Cultures of Asia and a certificate in Asian-American Studies.

Who said the summer months are slow? For the months of July and August, the SEARAC Education team is focused on writing public comments on proposed regulations on accountability and assessments for the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), hosting webinars on ESSA, and shooting videos in various languages to explain the importance of AAPI data disaggregation.

We stand for racial justice.

As AB 1726, the AHEAD Act (D-Bonta), reaches the Senate Floor, Asian & Pacific Islander American Health Forum (APIAHF), California Pan-Ethnic Health Network (CPEHN), Empowering Pacific Islander Communities (EPIC), and Southeast Asia Resource Action Center (SEARAC) continue to stand proudly with our community-driven movement to advance the civil rights of Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders (AANHPI) by calling for data disaggregation of our diverse community.
