Diversity Leader Featured in Report
During May, which is Asian American Pacific Islander Month, Tran raised more than her $1,000 goal for the Southeast Asia Resource Action Center (SEARAC) Leadership Advocacy Training in Washington. SEARAC was founded in 1979 to facilitate the relocation of Southeast Asian refugees into American society and to foster the development of nonprofit organizations led by and for Southeast Asian Americans. The money Tran raises will go toward the cost of sending aspiring advocates to the training, which she attended in 2014. Her fundraising page.
Tran was featured in SEARAC’s 2015 annual report for helping to educate South Dakotans about issues that are important to the state’s Asian American population, estimated to be 1-2 percent. The Sioux Falls Argus Leader also profiled her last year.
