A Village Called Versailles - Film Screening and Discussion - AAPI identified only

Asian Pacific American Network of Oregon (APANO)
2788 SE 82nd Avenue
Portland, OR 97266, US (map)



Please join APANO and our Climate, Health, and Housing Institute (CHHI) Fellows for the second of a 4-month series of film screenings and community discussions. This film series is an opportunity for APANO members to come together to build a shared analysis about the intersecting root causes of our current climate, health, and housing crises. This next film, A Village Called Versailles, is the inspiring story of intergenerational organizing in a Vietnamese-American community in New Orleans that fights back against plans by the city to open a toxic debris dump site in their community, without an environmental impact study after Hurricane Katrina. This film highlights the intersections between climate justice, anti-displacement, and environmental racism. This screening is for APANO members and anyone who identifies as AAPI.

All films will be screened at the APANO office (2788 SE 82nd Ave, Suite 203, Portland, OR). Tickets are FREE, but space is limited, so please RSVP on our website. The films will be shown on the First Thursday of every month (July-October) at the APANO office. Light snacks will be provided. Please eat dinner beforehand. Childcare is available, with at least 4 days' advance request. Please contact Khanh Pham at khanh@apano.org with any questions.
