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.

Having worked closely with SEARAC, we are convinced that their powerful advocacy and leadership building can improve the lives of Southeast Asian American communities for generations to come. That's why we're raising $2,500 to prepare for whatever challenges 2018 might bring for our communities.

SEARAC strongly supports the ASPIRE Act, a bipartisan education equity bill introduced yesterday by Senator Chris Coons (D-DE) and Senator Johnny Isakson (R-GA). The ASPIRE Act aims to increase low-income students' access to post-secondary education and raise graduation rates for all students by setting bare-minimum standards for access and completion for colleges participating in federal loan programs.

Washington, D.C. - Cambodia's immigration department recently confirmed that more than 70 Cambodians from the U.S. will be deported in the month of December. Sources say that this will likely happen in two batches, with the first group of about 50 to be removed in the next few weeks prior to the holidays.
