In celebration of Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage month, we will showcase Storytellers selected from a nationwide open-call to share their Vietnamese American stories on a live virtual platform. This will be a casual evening to view and celebrate the uniquenesses our community brings to the Asian American narrative. You might laugh, cry or be in total shock by the stories...either way, you will be entertained.

This year's event theme: 2020... a year unlike any other. 

A global pandemic has completely changed our everyday lives, an election year has divided our country, there has been unprecedented racism against Asians, and continued police violence against Black Americans spurred the largest nationwide wave of protests. We've also seen local communities uniting, new friendships forging (even if virtually), and new hobbies and hidden talents emerging. For this year's Story Slam event our select storytellers will share how 2020 has changed them.
