FA PAC would like to acknowledge previous interns of the student Internship Project. We would like to thank them for their dedication to fighting for economic and social justice at local and statewide elections. Additionally, these interns engaged in volunteer recruitment and voter education around the key issues in each election.
Furthermore, the Interns also registered and educated voters, carried out classroom presentations, recruited and mobilized volunteers, and reached out to faculty and staff throughout the Foothill-De Anza Community College District. FA PAC graciously appreciates all the interns did for the our cause.
Amna is passionate about fighting for issues of access and opportunity that stem from inequality. In her application to be an FA PAC intern she expressed her commitment to creating political and social alliances across race, class, and gender to bring about a stronger and more just community. As an FA-PAC intern, she hopes to grow in her organizing skills, to represent the needs of her community, and to work towards the PAC’s mission of benefiting student and faculty lives through advocacy and organizing.
Last year Tung attended the FACCC Advocacy and Policy Conference, volunteered and advocated for better, cleaner and more efficient public transportation through the VTA Bus Rapid Transit project, and participated in De Anza’s Campus Camp Wellstone program. Since the Winter 2015 term, Tung has also been an peer mentor for De Anza’s Political Science Department helping other students to succeed.
From his military career and upbringing Tung Tran holds a great value in social and economic justice. He served 10 years in the Army, completing two tours to Iraq, and earning the Rank of Staff Sergeant. He was also awarded two Army Commendation Medals, two Army Achievement Medals, the National Defense Medal, the Iraq Campaign Medal w/ two stars, and Over Seas Service Medal. Through FA-PAC intern and organizing advocacy works, he hopes widen his personal and professional skill in student organizing and to work for social and economic justice.
