From Victim to Witness: Convening Cambodian Survivors to Discuss the Khmer Rouge TribunalForums for the Cambodian Diaspora in the United States
CJA and our partner organization the Applied Social Research Institute of Cambodia (ASRIC) will convene five forums in locations throughout the United States. The purpose of these forums is to provide legal outreach and information about the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC or Khmer Rouge Tribunal) and the upcoming trial against four former senior officials of the Khmer Rouge. The forums will be open to CJA clients as well as individuals from the Cambodian Diaspora and will take place in Long Beach and San Jose, CA; Lowell, MA; Washington, D.C.; and Philadelphia, PA.
The program will consist of presentations by CJA staff attorneys providing background on the crimes, defendants, and structure of victim participation before the Khmer Rouge Tribunal. In addition, there will be a discussion on reparations and a moderated dialogue with the audience which will provide CJA the opportunity to answer questions or concerns regarding the upcoming trial. The forums will be conducted in English and Khmer, and will include a ceremony to acknowledge the struggles of the Cambodian community under the Khmer Rouge.
