First Official Public Meeting of The Boston Vietnamese-American Council (BVAC): Thursday, August 29, 2013

WE WANT YOU TO BECOME A MEMBER OF THE BOSTON VIETNAMESE-AMERICAN COUNCIL
Our First Official Public BVAC Meeting is Thursday, August 29, 2013

The Boston Vietnamese-American Council (BVAC) is a community-based group created in response to the fast growing population and demand for stronger community involvement of Vietnamese-Americans in the greater Boston area. BVAC will promote the social, economic, cultural, educational, and political advancement of the Vietnamese community in Massachusetts.

BVAC members will serve as advocates for the Vietnamese community via networking and community engagement to seek greater access to resources from government and nongovernmental programs and entitlements.

Current BVAC members are those who are actively engaged in local communities. We have different experiences and contributions, but we have one thing in common, that is the voluntary spirit in building a stronger Vietnamese community.

Some of the proposed issues to be added to our agenda for 2013 are:

1. Encourage the Vietnamese to engage in the re-establishment of the Fields Corner Civic Association in order for the Vietnamese community to have a voice in decisions related to Fields Corner, where the Vietnamese population is most concentrated in Boston
2. Advocate for Vietnamese immigrants who need job-training skills and workplace bilingual education
3. Create a Boston Vietnamese-American Political Action Committee (BVAPAC) to actively participate in the politics that affect our well-being

The Steering Committee of BVAC respectfully invites you to join us at our first official meeting scheduled for 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, August 29, 2013 at our BVAC office located on 1157 Dorchester Ave, 2nd floor, Dorchester. Please call and tell us whether you plan to attend this historic meeting and let your voice be heard on behalf of our community. Call us now at 617-794-4642 or email us at BVACinfo@yahoo.com.
