Congratulations to Elizabeth Gao, our most most recent scholarship award winner! Gao is is working on a double major in sociology, and in law, societies, and justice at the University of Washington.
A senior community organizer for the Chinese Progressive Association in San Francisco wrote in support of Gao that she is a “grounded, introspective, genuine, and courageous leader and activist.”
Much of Gao’s community work has focused on social and racial justice, and gaining mental health resources for youth. In summer 2020, Gao was a Seeding Change Eva Lowe Fellow–a national program for growing alliances and positive social movement within the Asian American community at a grassroots level to improve lives for low-income families, immigrants, and people of color.

We hope you like the look and functionality of our new site!
Our parent organization, LERA, recently upgraded all chapter sites and moved them to a new location. With those changes, your current bookmarks may no longer work.
While nwchapterlera.org still works and remains live as a friendly forwarding address, the actual link is now http://lerachapter.org/northwest/.
We’ve recently scaled back and cleaned up our site to make it more user friendly. Please let us know if we are missing anything you regularly accessed prior to this summer!
