honorary board member
Pheng Lee is an educator, entrepreneur, and passionate advocate for educational and economic equality. He understands the connection between trusted relationships between students and adults and academic success. He founded Asian Unity, a youth-based decentralized organization that helped those living in extreme poverty in Southeast Asia receive the proper resources they need from their government. Due to Covid-19 travel restrictions, in 2020, Asian Unity shifted to become an AANHPI & Hmong social & racial justice movement with a mission to end hate crimes against the AAPI & Hmong communities in the United States. In his work with Asian Unity, he sees the impact that strong relationships have on the lives of youth. As PABNEEG's Co-Founder and Co-Executive Director, he is determined to build a community of caring adults who can end the opportunity gap that disproportionately harms Hmong, Black, Brown, and Indigenous students.
