Vick Chung (March 2024)

San Francisco Democratic County Central Committee AD 17

Vick uses “they, them, their” pronouns, and they are the first, openly non-binary, gender-queer person to hold an elected office in the history of San Francisco—specifically they were elected in 2022 to serve on the San Francisco City College Board. Vick was born and raised in San Francisco, is a child of Hakka-Chinese, Vietnamese refugees, and is a survivor of child incestuous abuse.Vick grew up with section 8 housing assistance in the Tenderloin and Bayview district and deeply benefited from many public assistance programs and nonprofits that served low-income families like theirs. And Vick is a proud product of San Francisco’s K-12 public schools. 

After graduating from Lowell High, Vick briefly lived outside San Francisco to obtain a college education at UC Davis. In the hopes of paying-it-forward by becoming a health care provider to low-income, marginalized, communities of color, they sought out and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Neurobiology, Physiology and Behavior. While in college and over the next decade, Vick worked to advance community health through serving in diverse capacities. They worked as a research lab aide and clinical laboratory technician; a healthcare interpreter and patient advocate; filing-tax-aide to low-to-middle-income families; interpreter to residents applying for citizenship; tutor for ESL students and budding allied health students, sexual health educator and mentor to survivors of sexual violence; and lobbyist in the federal circuit for international aid. Currently, Vick serves the community as a workers’ compensation judicial assistant for CA’s Department of Industrial Relations by day, and as an advocate for community-centered higher education by evenings and weekends.
