Washington State Cambodian American communities have been deeply shaken by the recent raids of beloved family and friends for potential deportation to Cambodia. A total of eight local men from the Seattle and Tacoma area were swept up in the most recent raids and may be deported as early as November. In response, a group of activists held a mini Leadership & Advocacy Training (LAT) on October 11 in the Seattle area focused on addressing this crisis of deportation.
