This collection is comprised of records collected by University of California, Irvine student Paokong Chang documenting the
Southeast Asian refugee experience in America, with a special focus on the Hmong population. The bulk of the collection contains
photocopies of original newspaper and magazine articles written in the 1980s. There are also reports, statements, pamphlets,
and brochures written by various Hmong activist and human rights groups documenting their activities and refugee life, particularly
in California. The materials include detailed contextual material that makes this data useful for research on early Hmong
refugee and immigrant life in America, human rights issues, and more broadly in Asian American diaspora studies.
