For more than 32 years your support has enabled us to serve tens of thousands of newcomers to Philadelphia. In 2016 you can double your impact through matched funds.
This has been a tumultuous year for all of us. Now, maybe more than ever, SEAMAAC, and many others doing the hard work in our communities, will need to be a beacon of light and a safety-net for the underserved, underheard and marginalized in our society. We hear many voicing concerns and fear of an uncertain future, but we also know that there are so many of us doing great things to mitigate unjust or unforgiving policies that may undermine our communities. SEAMAAC will continue to fight the good fight and to ensure that everyone in our community can live with dignity, respect and prosperity.
The exciting news is that this past year SEAMAAC has taken on new,
- Assisting more than 10,000 children, youth, adults, and seniors-reaching more than 18 distinct linguistic communities
- Mobilizing thousands of Asian Americans in civic engagement (including voting) to empower a disenfranchised community to participate in civic dialogue
- Beginning a neighborhood and Mifflin Square Park planning process that is engaging a diverse community and strengthening relationships
- Doubling our work to reduce high school truancy in Philadelphia
We look forward to continuing this work, but we can’t do it alone. Can we count on you for support this year?
As an added incentive, one of our core funders has generously offered to match every dollar contributed, so your tax deductible donation will have double the impact. Secure donations can be made by check, or by credit card through our website at www.seamaac.org.
Our continued vision is to build a society where newcomers and native-born are given equal opportunities to prosper, live free of oppression, and achieve their American dreams. SEAMAAC’s vision and work are even more critical given the current anti-immigration that pervades the political discourse today. Your generous financial support will enable SEAMAAC to achieve this vision. And while not the reason to support us, your donation is 100% tax deductible. Secure donations can be made by credit card through our website at

WHYY Learning Lab Video
Our Stories, Our Health is a project that has been teaching Vietnamese and Laotian elders to shoot video interviews about health topics they identified as important to their communities. The footage will be used in health workshops throughout the Southeast Asian community in the Philadelphia area. The Learning Lab has provided the video training, which is the focus of this behind-the-scenes look at the project.
