Juliet Le (she/her)

Program Officer

Juliet joined the Satterberg Foundation in June 2018 as a Program Manager. She grew up in a working-class household on Duwamish/Coast Salish Territories aka Seattle, Washington. Growing up, her views on classism, racism, sexism were shaped in part by being raised by Vietnamese immigrant and refugee parents. From the wisdom passed down by her mother who was born with a rare genetic retinal eye disorder, she moves through her work from a lens of love, compassion, and ancient wisdom and healing that will sustain us now and through our coming generations.

Juliet is a first-generation college graduate and majored in International Business and Economics from Seattle University. She was politicized in college and  has been grounded in culture and timeless teachings. She has rallied, protested, and organized around social justice issues at the intersections of reproductive justice, immigrant and refugees, and the carceral state.

Without the return of stolen wealth and land, alongside the deep need for healing justice, no liberation will be achieved in the United States or globally. Knowing this to be true, Juliet feels called to use her skills and lived experience to organize for structural redistribution. After working in and witnessing the nonprofit industrial complex both in Vietnam and in the US, she realized the deep need to dispel the narratives of traditional philanthropy which has led Juliet to focus on wealth redistribution at Satterberg Foundation.
