Decades after the war, harmful effects of Agent Orange/dioxin contamination are still being felt by millions in Vietnam, including children. The land is still poisoned at the hot spots, children are still born with severe birth defects and people are still getting sick from the dioxin. Fortunately, this is a humanitarian concern we can do something about.

Please join us for a two-day conference about ending the suffering, the pain and the tragic impact of this all too real legacy of the war in Vietnam. Learn more about the Plan of Action for addressing the long-term impact of Agent Orange and how we can all help Make Agent Orange History!

Program:

The conference will kick-off with a film screening on Friday, October 28th, followed by a day-long conference on Saturday, October 29th. Participants will have the opportunity to hear from a wide range of speakers about the continuing impact of Agent Orange and engage in a collective conversation about how we can end this tragic impact.
