Vu Le (“voo lay”) joins us today.  He is a writer, speaker, vegan, Pisces, and the Executive Director of Rainier Valley Corps, a nonprofit in Seattle that promotes social justice by developing leaders of color, strengthening organizations led by communities of color, and fostering collaboration between diverse communities. Yes, we do talk about fighting the zombies of injustice.

Vu’s passion is to make the world better.  He believes that we should take the work seriously, but not ourselves. 

Vu can be found at his featured blog NonprofitAF.com.  The NPR podcast “Invisibilia” is really good and the episode “The Pattern Problem” goes deeper into some concepts discussed in this episode.
