About this event

Building upon its own Equity Strategic Plan and the recent report Beyond Equity: Seeking Liberation, Autonomy and Justice in Orange County, Orange County Grantmakers is excited to announce a learning series on the historical and cultural context for inequity in our region as well as the need for systemic change to address its root causes.  Launching in March 2023, these in-person sessions will uplift the experiences of specific communities, cultural groups, and indigenous peoples, and will provide an opportunity for funders, government agencies, service providers, and other stakeholders to learn together and develop concrete action steps for addressing inequity.

March Topic:

Since the Cold War era, over 1.8 million refugees from Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam have entered the United States and remade their lives through and against conditions of war and displacement. Orange County, CA is home to the largest population of resettled Vietnamese refugees. Although Vietnamese Americans have lived in the U.S. for almost 50 years, it was not until this recent decade that the stories told about our experiences were written by Vietnamese people. Join us as we explore how Vietnamese communities have been shaped by competing forces and how the framework of joint struggle can be used to build solidarity and advance social, racial, and economic justice.

Welcoming Speakers:

  • Thuy Vo Dang, UCLA
  • Tracy La and Vincent Tran, VietRISE
  • Son Do, OCHMHC
