Healing Out Lao'd

Rita Phetmixay

Created/Hosted by Rita Phetmixay, M.S.W., M.A., Politicized Healing Practitioner, Coach, and Independent Audio Producer. Healing Out Lao'd explores the intersections of Lao diaspora storytelling x healing x tools for sustainability. While this show centers the Lao diaspora experience, anyone can benefit from this resource, especially those in the margins including QTBIPOC (Queer Trans* Black Indigenous Persons of Color), survivors, thrivers, healers, movement builders, and so forth. In order to highlight the nuances of the diverse Lao diaspora experience, HOL casts all perspectives of the struggle of children of refugees while also inspiring a new generation of folx to heal and move forward with their lives. This is one project to expand visions of the overall #LaoHealingMovement.
