Community Is Power

Reimagining Resistance: Community is Power

"All we really do is look to our ancestral and cultural ways to find the answer." Our final video in the Reimagining Resistance series is with Lan Dinh of VietLead. VietLEAD focuses on sustainability, and self-determination for the Vietnamese and Southeast Asian communities in Philadelphia and South Jersey. Under the new administration, the Vietnamese community has been rocked by a surge of ICE detentions targeting hundreds of community members with prior criminal convictions. VietLEAD has pulled together a national “Anti-Deportation Vietnamese Strategies Network,” because they believe that no one should be forcefully deported and removed from their families and communities. #not1more #refugeeresilience
