End Date: 10/8/2019End Time: 11:20 AM
Event Description:
Vietnamese immigration, and the story of the local Vietnamese community, will be the focus of a panel discussion, “Are You Good People? The Vietnam War, Refugees, and the Politics of Asylum”.

The event will capture some of the stories of these Vietnamese immigrants, how they reached American shores, the welcome they received from their American neighbors, the challenges of being an immigrant in the United States, and the politics surrounding refugees and asylum from the 1970s to the present day.  

The panel will include Dr. Walter H. Nguyen, who escaped from Vietnam after the war and now serves as the Executive Director of Mosaic Family Services (an agency that provides mental health and other services to refugees) and Yen Tran, J.D., who fled Vietnam as a child, and is now a pro bono immigration lawyer.
