A re-elected Andrews Labor Government will ensure the South Eastern Melbourne Vietnamese Association Council (SEMVAC) can keep supporting the Vietnamese community across the south east, with an $80,000 investment to help their work.

For years, SEMVAC has supported thousands of members of the Vietnamese community across the south eastern suburbs, providing assistance with housing, employment, health and more.

By continuing to invest in what matters, we will secure the future of this important community group.

For many Victorians from multicultural and multifaith backgrounds, community groups offer important connections to their culture and heritage.

Labor is backing Victoria’s multicultural communities – not just with words, but with action.

Matthew Guy’s Liberals only care about multicultural communities in an election year – you can’t trust them to stand with multicultural and multifaith communities in the face of rising extremism and racism.

Only Labor will support our many diverse communities and promote a vibrant multicultural society – because only Labor will do what matters.
