ABOUT ABOUT

Join us to learn more about the issues that are facing the residents of South Philly's ethnic neighborhoods and the importance of community non-profit work in the city. We'll then top off the tour with a delicious Southeast Asian lunch at a local restaurant!

Presented by the Asian Mosaic Fund (AMF) Giving Circle of Greater Philadelphia with the Southeast Asian Mutual Assistance Association Coalition (SEAMAAC).

Visit highlights:

  • Hear from SEAMAAC’s directors and outreach workers on the diverse immigrant/refugee communities in the region. Learn more about how to best serve these families and hear stories of their own journeys to America.
  • Tour and check out some of the classes offered to the community, such an Indonesian Cancer Prevention Workshop, ESL Citizenship and Computer Literacy classes.
  • Learn how you can get more involved and help support vulnerable minorities, all over a delicious lunch

 

The AMF "Pop Up" Community Visit and Tour with SEAMAAC aims to offer the following: 

  • Expose young professionals/leaders in the importance of witnessing the hard work of community-based organizations first-hand.
  • Highlight the courageous history of the residents in the area, as well as, the people that work hard in supporting them.
  • Expose the issues that impact these people (ex. urban renewal on low-rent housing and small businesses, the roles played by corporations and government agencies, etc.).
