Chinese Couplets is part memoir, part history, part investigation, the filmmaker’s search for answers about her mother’s emigration to America during the Chinese Exclusion era reveals the often painful price paid by immigrants who abandoned their personal identity, the burden of silence they passed on to their offspring and the intergenerational strife between immigrants and their American born children.

Location: Exhibit Hall – Special Events Area

Each year, the ALA Office for Diversity, Literacy and Outreach Services invites library professionals from all kinds of institutions to submit proposals to participate in the ALA Diversity and Outreach Fair, which is held during ALA’s Annual Conferences.

Generously sponsored by DEMCO, the ALA Diversity and Outreach Fair is an opportunity for libraries and member groups to share their successful diversity and outreach initiatives with ALA Annual Conference attendees, celebrate diversity in America’s libraries and exhibit “diversity in action” ideas.

The Fair highlights library services to underserved or underrepresented communities, including people with disabilities; people experiencing poverty and homelessness; people of color; English-language learners; gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people; new Americans, new and non-readers; older adults; people living in rural areas; incarcerated people and ex-offenders; and mobile library services and bookmobiles. Each year’s fair focuses on a special theme based on service to one of these communities.

Event President’s Program: From Vietnam to Syria: Refugees, Their Stories, and Needs

by Ngoc-Yen Tran on Thu, May 26, 2016 at 05:10 pm

Location: Orange County Convention Center (OCCC) W103B

Location: Orange County Convention Center (OCCC) W103B

During the Vietnam War, thousands of refugees fled the fighting and political violence in Southeast Asia and came to the United States. Some of these refugees settled in Orlando, establishing what is today the largest Asian population in the region. At the APALA President's Program, co-sponsored by IRRT and REFORMA, Vietnamese Americans will tell their stories about fleeing the violence for a new life and librarians will share their programs and strategies for helping today's refugees. Many parallels can be drawn between the refugee migration during the Vietnam War and the current crisis in the Middle East. Join us to discuss what roles libraries can play in aiding the millions of refugees and unaccompanied refugee children in their time of need.
