Rita Phetmixay is a Lao-Isaan American scholar-activist who graduated with a dual masters in Asian American Studies and Social Welfare from the University of California, Los Angeles.

Rita is an up and coming filmmaker who had the honor of creating a documentary about her father’s journey from Laos to Thailand and finally the United States. She was invited to show her film at the Sacramento Asian Pacific Film Festival in 2015 and is still learning about the various ways one can tell their story.

Rita’s other passions include learning more about her Lao American community, in addition to spreading awareness about Lao identity and its significance in American history. Moreover, she is dedicated to advocating for other underrepresented communities and creating spaces in which communities can discuss topics relating to violence, refugee/immigrant histories, trauma, healing, and resilience.

It is Rita’s aspirations to create social change so that these communities can achieve higher education, greater socioeconomic statuses, and healthier lifestyles.
