TEMPE, Ariz. – The Southeast Asian Refugee Film series returns at 6 p.m.
on Thursday with “The Story of Vinh,” in the Historical Museum lobby,

Communities in Arizona,” currently showing in the Tempe Historical
Museum gallery.

 

A moderator will lead a discussion and regional refreshments will be
served. The series is being presented in partnership with Community
Outreach and Advocacy for Refugees (COAR), an organization whose mission
is to assist refugees in adjusting to their new life in Arizona.
