  • A Promise Called Iowa

    In 1975, Governor Robert D. Ray opened Iowa's doors to people fleeing from Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia. The effort to resettle these refugees came down to one family, one church, one community at a time. This program is the moving story of how Southeast Asian refugees became Iowans and retraces their journey from Indochina to Iowa. [58 minutes]
