Join Aleena Inthaly from Legacies of War and OPAWL in this free virtual workshop to learn about the history of the American Secret War in Laos, which became the most heavily bombed country per capita in history, as well as the ongoing impact of US militarism in Asia, both in our past and our present. Aleena Inthaly (She/Her) serves as Chief of Staff of Legacies of War. Her role involves spearheading the organization’s community engagement and grassroots initiatives, which includes convening community-led organizations and like-minded groups to advocate for the removal of landmines and explosive remnants of war in Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam. She also leads efforts to secure funding for mine risk education and support for victims/survivors of landmine accidents.
In addition to her work in advocacy, Aleena is the Creator and Executive Producer of Legacies of War’s podcast series, Thip Khao Talk.
