Over 1.2 million refugees fled Southeast Asia after the U.S. withdrew its involvement in wars there. In the forty years after resettlement, Southeast Asian families are still coming to terms with what it means to come from a history of violence and war. There is so much more that happens after resettlement that still requires unearthing. What can we learn about intergenerational trauma from the experiences of 1.5 and 2nd generation Southeast Asian Americans?

Join us as we hear from PhD student, Mary Keovisai as she shares her research with us regarding this important topic.

Global to Local Luncheons are a 1-hour presentation on an international issue through the Social Work lens. Luncheons are presented by an expert in the topic area and food is catered by a local restaurant which is typically immigrant-owned. Free and open to public.

Luncheons are also streamed live via gotomeeting:
