What called you to this work?

I find that it is my moral duty as a first generation Vietnamese American queer woman to ensure the survival of people, especially others like me. I believe in a world full of loving people and until that happens, there is work for me to do.
Favorite quote or scripture related to justice:
“The wound is the place where the Light enters you.” -Rumi
Favorite book?
“The Life Changing Magic of Tidying-Up” by Marie Kondo
Favorite thing about Reno? 
On any given day, I can walk out on the street and see at least one person I know before the day is out. As I organize and get in touch with my community more, it happens more.
