Vu is involved with this work because there is a lot of injustice in our world. He believes that the only way we can address them effectively is if we get everyone to work together. “We have amazing organizations led by communities of color, and we have a lot of talented emerging leaders of color.” He believes that we just need to support them so they can do even more awesome things. After realizing he wanted to do community work, he got a degree but couldn’t get a job because of lack of experience. Vu was accepted into a similar program and learned a lot through it. The program kept him in the sector and allowed him to keep doing the work he loves. Vu is the former Executive Director of the Vietnamese Friendship Association. Fun Fact: Vu is the author behind the nonprofit humor blog, Nonprofit: Absolutely Fabulous
