Online Program

Title: Viets for Afghans - Our Accidental Journey Into Allyship and Advocacy for Afghan Refugees 

Viets for Afghans co-founders Uyen Nguyen and Thanh Tan will discuss the whirlwind few months they've had forming a Vietnamese-led coalition to help Afghan refugees. Nguyen fled Vietnam by boat as a child. Tan is the daughter of refugees who escaped three years after the Vietnam War ended. Moved to action by Washington's legacy of welcoming refugees, they'll share stories of allyship and advocacy for Afghan refugees - and practical ways that anyone can become a humanitarian at this critical time.
