Wei is the Program Coordinator for ASPIRE, the nation’s first pan-Asian undocumented youth group. Wei first became involved with ASPIRE as a member in the fall of 2011. He strives to bring more visibility and create safe space to API undocumented immigrants. During the Summer of 2013, Wei was part of the Eva Lowe Fellowship for Social Justice at Chinese Progressive Association in San Francisco. There he learned more about grassroots organizing and social justice movement building by working with low-income working class Chinese immigrants and community organizers in the Bay Area.
Born and raised in Brazil, Wei immigrated to the U.S. when he was 16 years old with his family. He graduated from UC Santa Cruz in 2011 with a B.A. in Psychology.
