As mentioned earlier, a new haiku and photo of mine have been accepted for the 40 & Forward: Southeast Asian Americans Rooted & Rising blog organized by the Southeast Asian Resource Action Center in Washington D.C. It's now up, and I'm delighted to know that I was selected as the inaugural entry of this wonderful project.
I strongly encourage others to share their stories, photos, poems and memories with this project as we mark 40 years of the Southeast Asian Diaspora. The Southeast Asia Resource Action Center (SEARAC) is a national organization that advances the interests of Cambodian, Laotian, and Vietnamese Americans by empowering communities through advocacy, leadership development, and capacity building to create a socially just and equitable society. I look forward to seeing the other entries the post at 40 & Forward in the coming year ahead.
