Sahtu Press founder Nor Sanavongsay will be among the community builders helping to raise funds for the non-profit Legacies of War on April 8th in Berkeley, CA.
Hosted by Hilary and Daniel Goldstine, Adam Thongsavat, Dr. Cynthia Nguyen, and many more to come the event addresses a tragic era in US foreign policy. During the Vietnam War-era, over 270 million bombs were dropped, an estimated 80 million remain, killing and maiming Lao villagers today. There are over 12,000 victims from accidents caused by unexploded bomblets.
This year’s theme, “LaoNow/ActNow” will highlight the urgency to make sure that the U.S. government follows through on its $90 million pledge made by President Obama last year.
