Sarah Tran is the Executive Director of the Nonprofit Assistance Center (NAC) - a people-of-color led organization whose mission is to support community organizations and funders to be strong partners in movements for social justice through coaching, peer learning, and collaboration. NAC is committed to serving communities of color, including the refugee, immigrant, low income, LGTBTQIA2, and other communities impacted by structural racism.
Sarah has spent over a decade working for racial justice, gender equity, and human rights both locally and internationally, however her roots in this work run much deeper coming from a Vietnamese refugee family. These experiences inform her deep and nuanced understanding of adaptive leadership, organizational development and change management, and movement-building. Through experiencing the barriers that keep communities divided and marginalized and youth and families from finding stability and opportunity – Sarah believes that we are strongest when we invest in the inherent wisdom and leadership of resilient communities and build solidarity across communities.
