This Month's Feature Film: "The Hmong and the Secret War"

In 1961, four years before the Vietnam War, the CIA funded a Secret War in Laos. The Hmong became CIA’s surrogate army, fighting and preventing Communism from consuming the country of Laos. Watch as questions about the Secret War in Laos during the Vietnam War and the circumstances that brought the Hmong to America are explored.

After the film, attendees will have an opportunity to discuss the film with others to respond to the following questions:

What? So What? Now What?

1. What did you learn and discover? What insights did this film provide?

2. Why is this topic and information important for our community now?

3. How am I going to take what I learned and make a positive difference within my spheres of influence now?
