VietUnity envisions building a strong grassroots organization to bring Vietnamese people together with the goal of working on local issues while making the connections to a broader system, and to a larger multi-racial and multi-class movement for social justice.
VietUnity is committed to the struggle for global peace, justice, and self-determination. Through alliance building, education, organizing, and collective action we work for positive social change and against all forms and systems of oppression.
What does VietUnity do?
- We support the leadership of Vietnamese youth, workers, and families to improve their lives and organize for justice; and
- promote a progressive voice within the Vietnamese community.
We came together in the winter of 2004 in the San Francisco Bay Area as a response to the needs for a progressive/radical voice and presence in the Vietnamese American community. Individually we were working in different movements and communities but felt that we needed to begin working together to build our collective power.
