Linda Mabalot was the beloved Executive Director of Visual Communications from the mid-’80s until her passing in 2003. She guided VC through a most difficult and challenging time when the organization was focused on survival and still committed to serving and continuing Asian Pacific American media projects. Linda’s resilience, political savvy, and commitment to multicultural collaboration served her and VC well. She was creative, spontaneous, and had a generously inclusive nature with an infectious laugh, which helped her staff confront the challenges and survive a difficult time. Today, the staff is still propelled by the vision and foresight brought to the organization by this widely admired, one-of-a-kind leader.

Join us for a special Monday Nite VC presentation as we remember Linda, her projects, and discuss her long lasting impact.
