The Project

Anna addressed the ongoing issue of exploitation in the workforce of Vietnamese immigrants in the Greater Boston area. These immigrants lack significant formal education, job skills and proficiency in English and they compete for a limited number of low-skilled jobs. In collaboration with Greater Boston Legal Services and Vietnamese organizations, Anna connected with community leaders to provide worker workshops and representation where necessary, and also with the Attorney General and Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
