Katrina Five Year Anniversary Update

Thursday, August 26th, 2010

The five year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina is upon us and I wanted you to know about the incredible work being done on the Gulf Coast to repair past and current damages. If you haven’t yet visited the sites of the Mary Queen of Vietnam Community Development Corporation & Vietnamese American Young Leaders Assn.- New Orleans, please do so. We also recently partnered with VietUnity and their new group, Viet Gulf Coast Solidarity Network, for a screening of A VILLAGE CALLED VERSAILLES. VGCSN is an Oakland-based grassroots organization working to aid the Vietnamese people of the Gulf Coast. If you are interested in knowing more about their organization and how you can help, join their facebook page, or email: vietgcsn@gmail.com.

Dozens of organizations and media groups have been trying to bring awareness to the current devastation in the Gulf Coast and how it is related to what happened five years ago. We wanted to share a few of the informative and poignant pieces we’ve found:

RADIO
NPR-
After Katrina, New Orleans Has A New Political Face

“I felt a compelling need to promote social change,” says Republican Rep. Joseph Cao. “I thought the best possible way for me to do that was to become politically involved.”

“Thuong Nguyen, a Louisiana shrimp fisherman, survived a treacherous trip from Vietnam and Hurricane Katrina. But now he worries that he may not make it through the gulf oil spill.”

I also wanted to let you know we have three A VILLAGE CALLED VERSAILLES screenings coming up: two in San Francisco and one in North Carolina.

Pro-bono Vietnamese language legal clinics for oil spill victims this weekend

Friday, June 25th, 2010

This is a press release of the pro-bono law clinics for the Vietnamese American fisherfolk impacted by the oil spill. Please note and support the organizations doing this important work at this time of need.

VABA-DC Joins Coalition of Non-Profits To Establish Volunteer Law Corps and Hold Pro-Bono Vietnamese-Language Legal Clinics For Oil Spill Disaster Victims in the Gulf Coast.

MEDIA ADVISORY

EVENT DATE: JUNE 26-27, 2010

Contact:           Shandon Phan, shandonphan@gmail.com or (202) 415-3366

In response to the urgent legal needs of the Vietnamese American community affected by the BP Oil Spill Disaster, VABA-DC has joined forces with various national and local community organizations and bar associations to hold two bilingual legal aid clinics for Vietnamese American fishermen in the Gulf Coast on June 25-26, 2010.

“VABA-DC is committed to serving the legal needs of the Vietnamese American community,” said Mai T. Pham, VABA-DC President. “It is critical for us to be part of this important effort to protect the rights and interests of the Vietnamese American community along the Gulf Coast and their way of life.”

The legal clinics will provide language access, information, and legal assistance to approximately one thousand Vietnamese American fishermen regarding BP claims policy and procedures. The clinics will be staffed by a team of 26 Vietnamese American attorney and law student volunteers from various bar associations and community organizations across the U.S. Of those, five are VABA-DC members.

“The outpouring of support from individuals and organizations across the country has been extraordinary,” said Mai Phan, a former Biloxi native, former president of the Vietnamese American Bar Association of Northern California and the project’s lead organizer. “During this time of crisis, Vietnamese-American attorneys and law students across the country have answered the call of service, dedicating their time and efforts to protect the rights and interests of thousands of community members.”

The large-scale legal clinics project highlights the tradition of service established by community advocates and organizations in bringing professionals of various backgrounds to the region to serve those in need in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

The project is supported by Congressman Anh “Joseph” Cao, who is scheduled to stop by the New Orleans clinic on Saturday.

VABA-DC is the only Vietnamese American Bar Association on the East Coast, representing over 100 Vietnamese American attorneys and law students in the area. Its mission is to promote the professional growth and advancement of Vietnamese American attorneys, encourage and facilitate the entry of Vietnamese American students into the legal profession, contribute to the public interest by serving as a voice for the local Vietnamese American community and assist community members with legal concerns.

Did you know that between 30-50% of the fishermen along the Gulf Coast are South East Asians, especially ethnic Vietnamese? A comprehensive article on CNN.com today delves into the impact of the oil spill on the Vietnamese American fisherfolks & families on the Gulf Coast, many of whom are from Versailles. Read about how the community is responding from Father Vien, Tuan Nguyen from Mary Queen of Vietnam Community Development Corp (MQVN-CDC), and Rep. Anh “Joseph” Cao. Community activist Celine Tran speaks about the impact on the Biloxi Vietnamese American families. The article also has a nice shout out to A VILLAGE CALLED VERSAILLES.

WXXI Community Screening in Rochester, New York

Friday, June 4th, 2010

Mimi Nguyen, subject of A Village Called Versailles, recently participated in a great Community Cinema screening in Rochester, and shared some photos and a note to let us know how it went:

“About 30-40 people showed up at the Community Cinema night at WXXI Studio in Rochester, NY to see A Village Called Versailles on Tuesday, May 18, 2010. The Q&A session following the film included speakers Laura Garrison, Assistant Vice President/Producer, Bob Smith, Host/Producer, as well as myself.

There were about 5 Vietnamese people in the crowd. Two of my childhood friends, who also stayed in the same refugee camp with me back in the day, were really touched by the documentary. They, too, were inspired and proud of the strength and determination of the Vietnamese Americans in New Orleans. It was an honor and a humble opportunity for me to be back in Rochester, NY. Thank you WXXI team for bringing me back home.”

Super Tuesday today & more screenings

Tuesday, May 18th, 2010

Lots to tell you in this email about A VILLAGE CALLED VERSAILLES, including our big PBS premiere on Tue, May 25th… that’s a week from now!

First, some important news. The BP oil spill has hugely impacted the Southeast Asian/Vietnamese American fishermen, who make up 35-45% of the fishing industry along the Gulf Coast (here is a LA Times article about this). Mary Queen of Vietnam Community Development Corp. (MQVN-CDC) in Versailles hosted a community meeting this month to address the issue. Read about it here, and please contact MQVN-CDC directly to find out how you can help.

A VILLAGE CALLED VERSAILLES continues its free nationwide Community Cinema screenings. Today 5/18 is our SUPER TUESDAY, with six screenings around the country. Father Vien, Mimi, and myself will all be attending screenings. So come say hello, and please see the listing below for info on the remaining free screenings. We also brought home two awards from the LA Asian Pacific Film Festival–the Documentary Audience Award and the “Call to Action” Award for promoting social change. Thanks to APA Bar Association-LA and Vietnamese American Arts & Letters Assoc for turning out the supportive crowd, and to Father Vien and Mimi for joining us.

Don’t forget, our national PBS broadcast premiere on Independent Lens is only a week away on May 25th. To see when A VILLAGE CALLED VERSAILLES will be playing on your local PBS station, click here.

Finally, Mary Queen of Vietnam Community Development Corp. (MQVN-CDC) put together a “5 Years Post-Katrina” update about how the Versailles community is doing. Folks at MQVN-CDC are responsible for all the amazing community projects mentioned in the film (health clinics, charter school, urban farm, etc). You can download the PDF here and find out more about MQVN-CDC here.
