Sarah Tran, Associate Trainer

sarah tranSarah Tran was born and raised in Seattle, Washington, by Vietnamese parents who came to the United States as refugees. During her earliest years, the family was solidly working-class as her parents worked hard to support their children while sponsoring relatives from Vietnam to come to the US. By the time she was four, there were ten people living in their little house. When her parents advanced in their careers, they were able to move out into a larger home, becoming the only family of color in a predominantly white neighborhood. Sarah grew up experiencing racism and sexism throughout grade school and struggled with becoming a class “straddler” as her family’s socioeconomic status changed. These experiences ground and guide Sarah‘s work today as the Executive Director of the Nonprofit Assistance Center – an organization dedicated to building capacity, resources, and leadership in communities of color and other marginalized communities.
