Young Vietnamese American Survey

Young Vietnamese American Survey

December 8, 2017
It is with great pleasure and appreciation that we present to you the results of this important survey conducted by our very own Young Vietnamese American Committee.  Organized in May 2017, the Committee was not able to identify any significant assessment of what young VAs thought and how they acted with respect to civic and political engagement. And thus, in the spirit of PIVOT, they decided to do something about that. From July to now, they designed a survey, collected 544 responses, analyzed the results, and wrote it up.

PIVOT's Statement and Call to Action to Defend DACA

PIVOT's Statement and Call to Action to Defend DACA

September 5, 2017
The Trump administration's announcement today to end the Deferred Action on Childhood Arrival (DACA) program, which provides opportunities to nearly 800,000 undocumented young Americans, marks another dark period in our nation's history. Immigrants of all status have contributed significantly to this nation, both economically and socially. Rather than recognizing the remarkable strength and diversity that immigrants bring to our nation, this Administration chooses to unnecessarily target, blame, and displace these young immigrants, despite the government's invitation for them to apply for DACA and register themselves.

PIVOT's Statement on Charlottesville

PIVOT's Statement on Charlottesville

August 14, 2017
On this past weekend, the KKK and Neo-Nazis marched under torchlight through Charlottesville chanting “Blood and Soil”, evoking Nazism and the Holocaust, some of the most brutal consequences of racism and hatred in recent memory. This disgusting scene turn tragic when dozens were injured and Heather D. Heyer, 32, was killed when a car plowed in a crowd of counter-protesters. Donald Trump, in a statement of characteristic moral blindness, condemns hatred “on all sides,” equating those who seek to oppress with those who struggle against oppression.
