PIVOT Endorses Tam Dinh for School Board in Mercer Island, WA

July 8, 2019

PIVOT proudly announces that we are endorsing Dr. Tam Dinh, a candidate for Mercer Island, WA School Board Position 5, and currently an Associate Professor and Program Director of the Social Work Program at Saint Martin’s University. Dr. Dinh, the only candidate with professional experience in education, has been involved over the last 25 years at the local and state level in providing services and advocating for policies that reflect and address the education and mental health needs of Vietnamese Americans. She believes her education, mental health expertise, and advocacy background would be an asset on the School Board to help address the increasingly complex needs of a growing, diverse student population via the lens of diversity, equity and inclusion.

Dr. Dinh is facing a tough primary in August against two other candidates and would appreciate PIVOT members' support either through donating or volunteering with her campaign.
