Description

DASH Dinner Discussion was created as an extension of DASH (Delivering and Serving Hope). Once a month, a speaker from a local non-profit organization or community group is invited to come and chat with students in a low-key, casual environment about what their organization does and how students can get involved.

For April, in conjunction with Asian American Pacific Islander & Middle Eastern Heritage Month, we will be partnering with the International Council to learn about food insecurity with Dr. Mark Padoongpatt and the Asian Community Development Council (ACDC). Dr. Padoongpatt is an ethnic studies scholar at UNLV with a focus on Asian/Pacific Islander American studies and twentieth century United States history. His newly published book, Flavors of Empire, focuses specifically on Thai food and how and why it became central to Thai American community and identity formation in Los Angeles. The ACDC is focused on advocating for and improving the general well-being and education of the Asian, Pacific Islander community, along with other ethnic communities in Nevada.

Food will be provided, please bring your reusable water bottles.
