Vu Le

Vu Le, executive director of the Vietnamese Friendship Association (VFA), has announced he will step down in June, after serving nine years in the position. He will be leading the Rainier Valley Corps, a new project focused on strengthening the capacity of immigrant/refugee-led nonprofits, developing leaders of color, and amplifying the voice of communities of color. The project is guided by a partnership with VFA, United Way of King County, and other organizations, so “I’m not going very far,” said Le. His tenure as director of VFA “has been a wonderful and life-changing experience,” Le said, “with lots of great memories. I will miss you all. And I’ll miss the office. I might steal my chair.” (end)
