War Asylum | Silenced Aftermath of the War in Vietnam

Monday, May 1, 2017 5:00 PM - Friday, May 5, 2017 7:00 PM

1975 marks the fall of Saigon. Lasting for 20 years (1955-1975), the Vietnam war claimed more than 2 million lives, many of which were civilians. Even more were wounded, hundreds of thousands of children were left orphans, while those who managed to escape sought safety and a new life in countries all over the world. Since then, this diaspora has led to a variety of consequences such as: globalization, loss of cultural heritage, and a formation of a new identity.
In collaboration with the Hmong, Vietnamese, Cambodian, and Laos Student Associations, the APCC invites you to join us in a series of events to remember the impact of the Vietnam War and the progress of modern communities since its aftermath. 

Join us for a weeklong art exhibition and different discussion topics every day!!
