VBPJourneys Participate 2022
Introducing VBP Journeys, a digital space to collect and preserve stories from the community Vietnamese Boat People podcast and nonprofit, introduces VBP Journeys beta. We are so excited to share a new VBP initiative! The Vietnamese Boat People Journeys map was created to encourage intergenerational dialogue within families and communities, to share stories and histories, and to have a space to contribute photos, artifacts and legacies. This is a digital space, designed to be a community-driven platform to showcase family stories contributed directly from the community, for the community. Everyone has a story to share. And we are inviting the community to share yours to be included in this global collection. Stories can be short or long. The form is currently in English, but you can submit stories in the language of your preference. This beta version is still in the incubation stage, and there will be kinks, but you can help make it better! We invite you to join us in painting a more comprehensive picture of the complex journeys and lived experiences from the Vietnamese community all over the world.

Vietnamese Boat People Podcast with author Phuc Tran
A livestream podcast taping event - virtual discussion with author Phuc Tran of 'Sigh, Gone' and VBP podcast host Tracey Nguyen Mang. For anyone who has ever felt like they don't belong, Sigh, Gone is a memoir that shares an irreverent, funny, and moving tale of displacement and assimilation woven together with poignant themes from beloved works of classic literature. In 1975, during the fall of Saigon, Phuc Tran immigrates to America along with his family. By sheer chance they land in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, a small town where the Trans struggle to assimilate into their new life. In this coming-of-age memoir Tran navigates the push and pull of finding and accepting himself despite the challenges of immigration, feelings of isolation, and teenage rebellion, all while attempting to meet the rigid expectations set by his immigrant parents. Visit www.vietnameseboatpeople.org for more details on the stories of the Vietnamese diaspora. This event was produced with the support of VBP team members Megan Do (event production) and Matt Young (video and podcasting production).
Vietnamese Boat People Podcast #ShareYourVietStory

We encourage you to take a moment to ask your parents, an uncle or grandma...about their journey, your origin, your family history. #ShareYourVietStory #VBPstories Search for 'Vietnamese Boat People' podcast on your favorite podcast app or visit us at www.vietnameseboatpeople.org Video produced by the super talented Vivian Nguyen www.vivngu.myportfolio.com

Vietnamese Boat People Podcast - LIVE EPISODE! #11 NAILED IT
Film screening and LIVE Q&A with Director Adele Free Pham of 'Nailed It' Documentary. Episode #11 In virtually every city, state and strip mall across the U.S., people get their nails done in salons likely owned by Vietnamese entrepreneurs. How did our community come to dominate the $8 billion dollar nail salon industry? Director Adele Free Pham set out to explore the history of Vietnamese nail salons and discovered it all began with 20 Vietnamese refugee women and a chance encounter with famed Alfred Hitchcock actress and humanitarian Tippi Hedren. The "first 20" Vietnamese manicurists sought a way to support their children and families, unknowingly sparking a cultural phenomenon.
