(CPACS), the first, largest, and oldest organization in the Southeast to focus on issues and concerns of Asian Americans and immigrants, especially women, children and families with low incomes. Mrs. Huynh’s childhood experiences in her limited English proficient (LEP) Vietnamese Refugee household fuels her passion for community building, strategic planning, and policy work within the immigrant and refugee spaces. Since 2019, Huynh has tirelessly advocated for the Asian and immigrant communities on various local, state, and national community advisory boards, coalitions, and committees dedicated, but not limited to, areas of language access, civic engagement, immigrant rights, cultural competency, charitable services, and direct services. She serves as the lead of the CPACS’ civic engagement program and co-chairs the Asian American & Pacific Islander Complete Count Committee.

- Phi Nguyen
Phi Nguyen is the Litigation Director for Asian Americans Advancing Justice-Atlanta. She focuses on impact litigation in the areas of voter rights and immigrant rights. Since joining Advancing Justice-Atlanta in early 2017, Phi has helped block a Georgia state law that restricted voters’ right to an interpreter at the polls and represented a class of Vietnamese immigrants suing the federal government over the indefinite nature of their detention in ICE centers. Phi specialized in medical malpractice defense for several years before dedicating herself to community-centered civil rights litigation. She has nine years of litigation experience and has completed six jury trials. Phi graduated from the University of Georgia in 2005 and the Georgia State University School of Law in 2009. Growing up in the South as a Vietnamese American with refugee parents, Phi's life experiences formed into her passion to protect and promote the civil rights of AAPIs and other marginalized communities. Phi was introduced to Advancing Justice-Atlanta in 2016 when she partnered with them to lead Vietnamese Voices, a voter registration drive targeting Vietnamese Americans; this became a jumping point for further grassroots efforts to politically mobilize AAPI communities. Outside of her legal practice, Phi co-produces Wake Up, Atlanta, a web series dedicated to educating and civically empowering AAPI millennials in Georgia.
- Kavi Vu
Kavi Vu is a Vietnamese-American spoken word artist and videographer who lives in Atlanta, Georgia. She considers herself a storyteller who hopes to inspire her audience with her passion for cultural identity and social justice. She believes that too many ideas are left unspoken and too many stories are going untold from generation to generation. Through storytelling and videography, she is committed to being a part of the movement that brings more Asian Americans on our screens, on the stage, and to the polls. Kavi launched the web-series Wake Up Atlanta in 2017 with Co-Producer Phi Nguyen. The goal of Wake Up Atlanta is for Asian American ATLiens to become more civically educated and engaged, thus increasing voter turnout in a historically under-represented community. The non-profit hopes to engage Asian American millennials in Georgia through fun and digestible videos that are focused on local issues and elections, and to encourage them to have conversations about politics and representation without feeling inadequate or out of place.
