Hello Friends ~ 11 years ago on October 13th, Chan Bounkeut and her father Gwai were shot through the door of their home and Chan lost her life. Out of this tragedy, the West County Southeast Asian community, public system and community organizations came together to address the issues of violence impacting their communities and created an active youth group that came to be known as Southeast Asian Young Leaders, or SEAYL. We have had other losses including Alan “Ace” Lee, as well as members of the Viengvilai family who were tragically lost in a fire. In the spirit of remembrance, we are hosting a Candlelight Vigil on Friday, October 24th, 2014 at the Richmond Civic Center Community Room. 

The vigil will be held from 5-7pm at 325 Civic Center Plaza in Richmond. The candlelight vigil will honor the memory of SEAYL youth and families that have experienced tragedy and loss. There will be space for honored guests to say a few words. 

This event is open to the public and we encourage you to invite anyone you think should come to the event. If you have any questions, please contact: Sean Kirkpatrick (510) 282-7550 or Nga Le (916) 261-1123.
