Huge congrats to Southeast Asian Community Alliance (SEACA) and its founder, Sissy Trinh, for being featured on a recent episode of PBS’s Broken Bread!
SEACA, one of the latest organizations to begin using the Impact Suite, builds power among Southeast Asian youth and their communities in Los Angeles for a more just and equitable society through intergenerational, multiethnic dialogue, leadership development, and community organizing. The organization was started nearly 20 years ago due to a lack of resources targeting the needs of Southeast Asians. At the time, most API organizations were dominated by the needs and interests of more established API communities (Chinese, Japanese, Korean, etc.) who were typically more affluent.
SEACA’s work was just featured on PBS’s Broken Bread — hosted by legendary chef Roy Choi. In the episode, Sissy gives Choi an in-depth walking tour of L.A.’s Chinatown, pointing out details and aspects of the community many often miss.
We couldn’t be happier for SEACA to be receiving this much-deserved recognition, especially after all of the work the organization has done to ensure the health and safety of Chinatown residents during the Covid pandemic (learn more about that here). That work led the organization to be named 2021’s California Nonprofit of the Year.
