VIET Fellows’ Kelvin Vuong on City Visions Radio on enduring legacy of Agent Orange/Dioxin in Vietnam


On April 25, Kelvin Vuong, outgoing VIET Fellows Program Director, appeared on City Visions Radio as part of a program focused on the enduring legacy of Agent Orange/Dioxin contamination in Vietnam in the aftermath of the Vietnam War, and its lasting effect in Vietnamese American communities. Kelvin’s remarks focused in part on how the VIET Fellows program brings new generations of Vietnamese Americans into leadership and into a conversation about how to treat these issues.

Produced by Yumi Wilson, Professor of Journalism at San Francisco State University, and hosted by Joseph Pace, the program, The Legacy of Agent Orange: What the Bay Area Can Do to Help, included Charles Bailey, whose work with The Ford Foundation in Vietnam has laid the foundation for much of the national and international progress being made on these issues.  The panel also included De Tran, publisher and editor of VTimes, a Vietnamese-language newspaper based in Silicon Valley, and formerly a staff writer with the San Jose Mercury News and the Los Angeles Times.
