Monica Wong, Community Engagement Specialist
Monica hales from the Guangdong Province of China like most Chinese San Franciscans and possesses a deep understanding of the nuances of local Chinese culture and communities. As a certified interpreter, she is committed to ensuring that monolingual Chinese-speakers receive expert quality information and are not limited by their language abilities. Monica consults on the development of all communications and campaigns designed to engage and inform Chinese-speakers in San Francisco and throughout the Bay Area.
Over the past few years, she has helped bridge the gap between San Francisco city agencies and Cantonese and Mandarin-speakers living throughout the City. She routinely moderates focus groups for the SFMTA and the San Francisco Planning Department, and facilitates and interprets at community meetings including the Willie “Woo Woo” Wong Playground Renovation Project.
