This collection contains administrative files and ephemera from the Vietnamese American Coalition (VAC), a student club at
the University of California, Irvine established in 1993. Included are agendas and meeting minutes, information about events,
newsletters, publications, scrapbooks, and ephemera. Events documented include the Black April Commemoration, the Vietnamese
Film Festival, the Dust to Life film premier, Shadow Day, and the Little Saigon clean up.
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.
