Nhu-Minh Le is the Director of Victim Assistance at the Asian Pacific Development Center.

Le joined the commission to provide a voice to those who are consistently under-represented in our communities. Nhu-Minh wants to represent members of the Asian and Pacific Islander communities as well as immigrants and refugees from all over the world who are being demonized and targeted by those in power. She wants to offer a perspective only held by people like herself who have experienced the hardship of uprooting family in pursuit of a better life.

Outside of work and the commission, Nhu-Minh is constantly seeking opportunities to challenge herself both mentally and physically. Whether in the gym, on the trail, or at home, she wants to know that she is the most well-rounded, educated and active person possible, conquering each challenge with motivation and vigor. Le seeks to understand her community and to help shape it in the future, fostering the ideal of self-motivation and providing equal opportunities for all.
