Viet Rainbow of Orange County (VROC)'s mission is to create a world where everyone has the resources and agency to thrive with dignity. VROC is a grassroots organization based in Orange County, California that builds community and mobilizes intergenerationally. They are grounded in values of equity, healing, joy, and social justice. They primarily work with LGBTQ+ Vietnamese Americans and their loved ones through research, education, and advocacy, while also strengthening collective power alongside other communities working towards liberation.
VROC is hosting a pride event "Hot Person Summer", which is a gender-affirming clothing swap and fashion forward resource fair. This Pride event will provide material resources, skill-share opportunities, and community services to ensure that every queer trans person has what they need to have a hot person summer.

Beauty 2 The Streetz strives to serve the homeless by providing necessities alongside the things that make us feel inherently human: a hot shower, a hearty meal, the hope-inducing feeling of looking in the mirror and loving what you see. They are building friendships based on equality and compassion and it is this, more than simply the hair and makeup, that brings beauty to the streets. Shirley, the founder, is a beacon of hope in LAʼs ever-increasing homeless population. Every Saturday, rain or shine, she and her team come out to share a hot home-cooked meal, conversation, and most importantly connection.
