"Great Love, Great Appreciation" by Paul Yang for
the California Transplant Donor Network

Asian Coalition (AC) is a voluntary membership organization comprised of faculty, classified staff, administrators, trustees, students and community members at City College of San Francisco (CCSF).

Established in 1979, Asian Coalition was established to promote the success of Asian American students and equal opportunity for Asian American faculty and staff at CCSF.  AC provides a vehicle for an organized and unified voice to address the needs and concerns of Asian Americans at CCSF.

Our goals are:

  1. To advocate for quality instructional and support services for the Asian American students
  2. To promote equal opportunities and advancement opportunities for Asian American faculty, staff and administrators
  3. To promote the awareness of Asian American social, cultural, political and community issues
  4. To ensure that Asian Americans have a voice at CCSF

2007 Asian Coalition Dinner was a big success

She taught pre-K at commodore Stockton school, started the young adult group at the Chinatown YMCA. She is an active member of the San Francisco community Board Inc., where she was a trainer for neighborhood conflict resolution.

Marion joined the EOPS program in 1975, organized the first peer advisor program in the college, developed the first leadership class curriculum and was the co-founder of the Asian Coalition. Marion has been the advisor for the EOPS Stepping Stone Peer Advisor club and was responsible for setting up the Tony Guiuan memorial scholarship.

Over the last 30 years, Marion has devoted her time to assist thousand of disadvantage students from all walka of life and backgrounds. She is known to be extremely humble about her commitment to social justice and educational access for all. In her spare time, Marion volunteers at the Zhong Hua Martial Art School in El Cerrito where she assists students with Tai Chi and Shao Lin Martial Art practice. Lastly, one can say that Marion is well versed in both Music and Martial arts. She plays the Chinese flute beautifully.

She has not only taught Chinese for three decades, but also served on the Academic Senate, a member of the East-West group, and has been the faculty advisor of the Myanmar student club since 1999.
