Inclusive Communities to Host Humanitarian Brunch Featuring Vu Le
April 7 @ 7:00 am - 10:00 am
Save the date for Inclusive Communities’ (www.inclusive-communities.org) 2019 Humanitarian Brunch, which will be held on April 7 at the Scott Conference Center (6450 Pine St.). This is the 81st year of this event and Inclusive Communities plans to continue their vital tradition of gathering Omaha’s best and brightest to honor those with a steadfast commitment to making the Omaha community a better place for everyone. Now more than ever, we need to recognize those who are dedicated to creating more inclusive communities.
The Humanitarian Brunch will start at noon with a happy hour, featuring a bloody mary and mimosa bar until 1 p.m. A hosted brunch and program will follow immediately afterward. The honored guest will be Vu Le, executive director of Rainier Valley Corps, a social justice non-profit. Vu is involved with this work because there is a lot of injustice in the world. He believes that the only way to address them effectively is if everyone works together. After realizing he wanted to do community work, he got a degree but couldn’t get a job because of lack of experience. Vu was accepted into a similar program and learned a lot through it. The program kept him in the sector and allowed him to keep doing the work he loves. Vu is the former executive director of the Vietnamese Friendship Association. Vu is also the author behind the non-profit humor blog, Nonprofit: Absolutely Fabulous.
Inclusive Communities envisions a society that is strengthened by diversity, inclusion, respect, and justice for all people.
