"From Genocide to Tableside"
Projects’ Mission: KITHS will be launching a project titled “From Genocide to Tableside” where we will host tableside conversations with various community organizations, leaders and members. The purpose of this project is to provide a safe space for people to gather and converse about the history of refugees and immigrants currently residing in Philadelphia, their resettlement experiences, their triumph over trauma, and their determination to recover from the atrocities of genocide. These conversations can bring to light the strength of a community and ideas for continued growth fulfilling KITHS’ mission to provide opportunities that can lead to self-sufficiency within the Asian American, immigrant, and refugee communities.
Target Group: Community organizations, leaders and members that have an interest in supporting the Asian American, immigrant, and refugee communities (specifically Cambodian immigrants and refugees). Organizations need not be a non-profit or representing a human service field.
Location: In the community – first tableside conversation will be held at KITHS, Inc. The hope is that those who are joining these conversations will offer to host the next tableside conversation.
Desired Outcomes: We hope these tableside gatherings will result in collaborative partnerships with various community organizations, leaders and members to continue the healing process, share resources, and support self-sufficiency, independence and growth.
