Petition for Bill to Include Laotian History in California Curricula


Please Support to Include Laotian American History in School Curricula

California Assemblymember Dr. Arambula Letter (Laotian American Bill)

We, members of the Laotian American Community and supporters of the Community, seek the inclusion of the Laotian refugee history in the state model curricula teaching about the war that took place in Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia, AKA Southeast Asia, and the plight of the refugees from these countries to the United States during the post-war era.

On August 31, 2018, Senate Bill 895 was passed to include the history of Vietnamese American refugee experience, the Cambodian genocide, and Hmong history and cultural studies.  The history of Laotians and Laos which is inseparable from the history of the war in Southeast Asia was not included in SB 895.

The multi-ethnic Laotian American Community and the supporters of the Community seek a bill to be introduced by the California Legislative member(s) in January of 2019 to include the history of the Laotian people, Laotian refugees and Laos that played a critical role in the war in Southeast Asia be included in the California state model curricula.

By signing this petition, I am supporting the proposed action.
