Presented by The USC Center on Philanthropy & Public Policy

Phi Nguyen, whose parents immigrated from Vietnam, witnessed the continual exclusion of immigrants when she helped resettle a Syrian family in Clarkston, Georgia, in 2015. As the Executive Director of Asian Americans Advancing Justice -- Atlanta, Phi chose to leave a successful private law practice to dedicate herself to reducing the barriers to inclusion and voting rights and fighting Anti-Asian hate.

Leading Boldly, The USC Center on Philanthropy & Public Policy’s new series focuses on emerging leaders who are working on an array of issues and varying approaches to create a more equitable society.

Four remarkable leaders, whose life experiences give them inspiration and strength, share their personal stories, reflect on their leadership journeys, and offer lessons for philanthropy in conversation with Fred Ali, the retired President and CEO of the Weingart Foundation, and a former nonprofit leader.
