This collection consists of the administrative files of the Refugee Forum of Orange County (RFOC), and the California State Refugee Forum (CSRF), and other documents relating to these organizations.

Included in the collection are meeting minutes, general and executive board meeting agendas, correspondence, memoranda, newsletters, reports, clippings, pamphlets, and program materials collected by Anne Frank, UCI Southeast Asian Archive Librarian and member of the RFOC. This collection also contains 12 proclamations from city, county, and state government officials presented to the RFOC on November 15, 1990, on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the Refugee Act of 1980.
