ANTHONY E. WRIGHT has served as Executive Director for Health Access, the statewide health care consumer advocacy coalition since 2002. Health Access has led state and national efforts to win consumer protections, fight budget cuts and invest in our safety-net, encourage prevention, and advance coverage expansions and comprehensive health reform. Wright led California’s coalition effort to help pass the Affordable Care Act and state laws to implement and improve it, and campaigns to successfully pass first-in-the-nation laws to ensure timely access to care, and to stop hospital overcharging of the uninsured.

As a consumer advocate and community organizer, Wright has been widely quoted in state and national media. He has also worked for New Jersey Citizen Action, the Center for Media Education, The Nation magazine, and in Vice President Gore's office in the White House.

Born and raised in the Bronx, Wright graduated from Amherst College magna cum laude in both English and Sociology. He lives in Davis with his wife Jessica, and his son Jefferson.

Although grief and loss are an inevitable part of life, we are often ill-equipped to handle them, especially when they affect the workplace. When a loss occurs, questions like these inevitably arise:

  • How do you support a friend or co-worker who's experienced the death of a loved one? What do you say ... and not say?
  • In the workplace, what can you do to help a grieving manager?  How can you ease a transition back to work after the loss of a family member?

Margo Fowkes of OnTarget Consulting and Tina Reynolds will speak about managing grief with a friend or especially in the workplace.  Learn how to create a compassionate culture that supports all employees through their worst times or even how to support your own family when there is a loss!

And, thanks to Elfrena Foord for this preview of Margo andTina's talk.

Why I Wrote TigerFish

TigerFish: A Memoir of a South Vietnamese Colonel's Daughter and her coming of age in America

By Ms HoangChi T Truong

I started writing my memoir in 1992 with the sole purpose of passing down my family history to my daughter (and son who was born a year later), to tell how vastly different my life had been compared to the lives they were living.  I wanted them to know how I survived the Vietnam war and successfully fled the communists at the fall of Vietnam in 1975, my ensuing journey in acculturation and assimilation in America, and how I eventually met their father. 

It is a story that must be told, a story that's been tugging at my heart, my soul, and all the fibers of my body. It's not a "want" to tell this story, but a need and a must-do life's goal of mine.

As time progresses and the political situation has changed with the Syrian refugee crises, this has given me another compelling reason to publish my story now, in order to raise awareness of the refugee experience.

No refugee chooses to be a refugee.  We do not choose to upset our lives, ripping out our hearts and souls, leaving all that we knew and loved for the unknown.  Rather, we do what we must do for our survival and the survival of our children, because it is a basic human need and drive to perpetuate our family's heritage and legacy. 

 Today, I'm sad to see the refugee crisis playing out repeatedly all over the world, and strongly believe that not only is it necessary to share my narratives, but it's unequivocally my obligation to pass it on as part of this country's oral history.

My life came full circle and I served for three years at the California Office of Emergency Services as the GIS Chief, leading and providing real-time online maps for response and recovery of disasters, manmade or natural.  I served the demographics of the misplaced, the needy, and the distressed, who were refugees of disasters, whether they fled their home from fires, earthquake, or flood. 

In sharing my story, my ultimate message is of compassion, love, and understanding through learning what it means to be a refugee.

I invite you to join me in creating a kinder, more compassionate world by learning what it means to be a refugee, reading TigerFish, a Memoir of a South Vietnamese Colonel's Daughter . 

With heartfelt gratitude!
