Cambodian Student Conference to Discuss “Going beyond Survival”

WASHINGTON — “Going Beyond Survival: Cambodian Intersectionality, Feminism and Education” is the theme of this year’s Khmer Students Coalition Conference (KSCC) to be held Saturday at California State University, Long Beach.

The 15th annual conference, co-organized this year by Cambodian Student Society of Cal-State Long Beach and the Cambodian Awareness Organization of University of California, Irvine, focuses on “moving past the Khmer Rouge and focusing more on the current of what is happening within our communities [Khmer-American communities]‍,” according to the conference program.

The conference began in 2004 “to connect, unite, and empower Cambodian students” from around the United States. It specifically aims to attract mostly Cambodian-American students and Asian-American Pacific Islander students “who are often underrepresented in the education,” said Leakhena Nou, faculty advisor for Cambodian Student Society, and professor of sociology at Cal-State Long Beach.
