VSU Spring Week 4 Updates and Announcements

 VSU Black April Commemoration 2012

 WHAT IS BLACK APRIL?

April 30, 1975 marks the day that the communists of North Vietnam overtook Saigon, the capital of South Vietnam. This effectively ended the Vietnam War as all of Vietnam became unified under a communist regime. The rule of the new government was cruel and oppressive, imposing harsh punishments and re-education upon affiliates of the South Vietnamese government. Consequently, over a hundred thousand Vietnamese refugees fled to America to escape the oppression, but to this day they continue to be haunted by memories of a terrible past. Thus is the story behind Black April.

THIS YEAR…
From April 23-26, the Vietnamese Student Union at UCLA will hold an event to commemorate Black April. The week-long event is a touching and empowering commemoration held each year to bridge the generational gap between many Vietnamese-Americans and war-related immigrant families. The purpose of Black April Commemoration Week is to be as creative, educational, heart-felt, and welcoming as possible in memory of the Fall of Saigon. This year, we want to use Black April Commemoration to take a step back to see the larger picture. With the theme “Rebuilding Home: Dreams and Nightmares”, we want to look at how refugees and immigrants have been affected by the war. We will also discuss what challenges Southeast Asian Americans are still facing today, namely mental health issues and the immigration/deportation issues.

Monday: Expression Night
April 23, 2012 | 7 – 9 p.m. | Sunset Rec Buenos Aires Room
Come join us in kick starting off Black April Commemoration Week by learning how to tap into your creative side and write poetry about your life. There will be an art gallery, music and spoken word performances.

Tuesday: Nightmares
April 24, 2012 | 6 – 8 p.m. | Tentatively Campbell 3232
Mental health is a taboo subject in the API community, specifically Southeast Asian refugees. Rediscover your motivations and learn ways to help yourself and others to be well, stay well, and do well. (tying war, PTSD, and mental health). Note: Resources.

Wednesday: Dreams
April 25, 2012 | 6 – 8 p.m.| Kerckhoff Staterooms 131-135
Over 230,000 immigrants are detained each year. From 1996-2004, almost 1.5 million individuals were deported from the United States. Can writing a bad check get you deported, even if you have a Green Card? Come find out.

Thursday: Black April Commemoration
April 26, 2010 | 6 – 9 p.m. | LATC Clubhouse
Come out and join us for our Black April commemoration night, which aims to provide a space to listen, learn, reflect and remember. There will be special Guest Speakers and Panelists, a Candlelight Vigil, and complimentary dinner.

HOW YOU CAN BE INVOLVED:
Volunteer! APPLY HERE BY TUESDAY APRIL 17: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/embeddedform?formkey=dGFaU2NNUnVfbzltbUwteXBHbHFWWWc6MQ


 

Vietnamese Graduation Coordinator/Volunteer Application

The Vietnamese Graduation is designed for graduating seniors of Vietnamese descent to celebrate such a momentous occasion with their families, friends, and individuals who have contributed to their success. With the Vietnamese Graduation, Vietnamese families will be able to better connect culturally with the program.

The event is also a space for Vietnamese students to take pride in their culture and their Vietnamese heritage. This cultural connection will be established through a Vietnamese commencement speaker, cultural performances, and Vietnamese speaking Master of Ceremonies.

The program will also include an opening statement, a march with the students, a slide show, keynote speakers, and cultural performances to reinforce this as not only for the graduates but also for their families. There will be translator for the speakers. Having a smaller number of graduates allows for each graduate to have the stage for thirty seconds to give their thanks, allowing them to take ownership of their commencement ceremony, something they would not be able to do at other graduations. This event is an integral part of the vision at UCLA to represent the diversity of cultures and students that attend this university.

This event will be the seventh annual Vietnamese Graduation hosted by the Vietnamese Student Union and will continue this tradition of building a program for the graduates’ families to witness their transition in a comprehensible setting and will take place on June 17th, 2012 from 3 pm to 6 pm.

Please JOIN us and celebrate the success of our beloved graduates! Please fill out the application below before 11:50PM Wednesday 5/2 (week 5)
