Between 1975 to 1990, 1.4 million Southeast Asian refugees from Cambodia, Vietnam, and Laos were resettled in the United States. This was the country’s largest refugee resettlement program following the war in Southeast Asia and the U.S.-led military campaign, where refugees experienced war, the uncertainty and instability of refugee camps, and genocide. However, more than 16,000 Southeast Asians from Cambodia, Vietnam, and Laos have been issued orders of deportation since 1998 due to anti-immigrant policies. Under the Trump administration alone, the detention and deportation in the Southeast Asian community has risen sharply, with recent raids targeting Cambodian Americans, and an increase of 279 percent in the deportation of Cambodian Americans since 2017, according to an NPR report last year.

Join us for a conversation with leaders organizing around the country to stop the ongoing criminalization and deportation of the Southeast Asian community. Speakers will discuss the political and historical contexts, the harmful impact of these deportations, address issues of community activism and education, and encourage action from philanthropy.
