What's poppin'?

Hope classes are going well and that you haven’t needed to consider dropping any (yet). We’re 3.5 weeks in (woopwoop) and midterms are (already) starting (teartear). If you need a break, drop by the AACC and meet some of the lovely staff! We have comfy couches and (usually) abundant snacks. 

Much love,

Identity, Activism & The Law: A Conversation with will Nguyen about Human Rights in Vietnam

The Vietnamese Students Association at Yale are hosting Will Nguyen YC’08 for a talk and moderated discussion on the modern political and economic landscape in Vietnam and the activism he’s been involved in there. This past summer, Nguyen was arrested in Vietnam for “disrupting public order” when he joined in public demonstrations against the proposed establishment of special economic zones that would allow for foreign investment in Vietnam, and with assistance from the Yale community, after more than a month in custody, was able to return to the U.S. Join us in learning more about social advocacy abroad and what it means to be a global citizen from someone who’s been on the front lines.
