Background
The Vietnamese American Coalition (VAC) was established at UC Irvine in 1993 by a group of undergraduates and alumni who felt concerned over the current state and the future of the Vietnamese American community, particularly that of Orange County. In order to end these concerns, VAC became politically and actively involved. Acting as a coordinating body, VAC aspires to promote active involvement within the Vietnamese American community, and to voice social and political issues pertaining to the Vietnamese American community, as well as those in Vietnam. http://clubs.uci.edu/vac/mission.html This accession includes event ephemera, administrative records, plaques, certificates, and scrapbooks documenting the activities of the Vietnamese American Coalition, a student group at the University of California, Irvine.
