Advocacy coordinator Duc Truong will be working to draw attention to the lack of religious freedom in Vietnam, including cases such as that of Father Nguyen Van Ly, shown here flanked by Vietnamese guards, who has long been imprisoned for his religious views.

February 25, 2009: Boat People SOS is proud to welcome Duc Truong, our new advocacy coordinator!


He acquired his experience as a legislative correspondent with Senator Norm Coleman (R-MN), then as policy director for a candidate in the 2006 Colorado gubernatorial race, and finally as a policy analyst for the Colorado Senate Republicans. He also has entrepreneurial experience as co-owner of a commercial property management corporation. He graduated from Creighton University with a JD and a BA in History.


As advocacy coordinator, he will rally support for effective intervention on behalf of victims of human trafficking and for policy changes and strict law enforcement in countries with trafficking problems. At the same time, he will be working with the Vietnamese-American community to advocate for human rights and religious freedom in Vietnam. In light of the ongoing economic crisis, he will also work with teams of Vietnamese-American elected officials, experts, and media contacts to ensure that our community receives the full benefits of the economic stimulus package.


BPSOS is very pleased to round out our team with an advocate with such strong expertise. Welcome!
