Lowell, MA Forum: September 29, 2012

CJA and ASRIC held a forum for Cambodian survivors at the Lowell Community Health Center in Lowell, Massachusetts on September 29, 2012. This marked the second time that survivors in the Lowell area were able to personally meet with CJA staff attorneys. Dr. Leakhena Nou, Executive Director of ASRIC, presented her research findings on the physical and emotional effects of the Khmer Rouge tragedy on survivors in the United States. Dr. Nou’s presentation was followed by a presentation by Nushin Sarkarati about the background of the ECCC as well as the court’s legal parameters and limitations. Survivors were given the opportunity to share experiences, ask questions and make statements throughout the forum.
