50 Years Anniversary

In commemorating 50 years anniversary of the Fall of Saigon and the birth of Little Saigon (April 30, 1975 - April 30, 2025) Little Saigon San Diego will be publishing a special edition to highlight the growth of the Vietnamese community--milestones and steps from arriving with just the clothes on our back to where we are today. 

To do this, we need your help. Within the next few months, a survey will be circulated in an attempt to collect data from all Vietnamese residents. As an end result, we will be able to have a complete picture of the Vietnamese Community of San Diego County, such as the total number of Vietnamese American serving in the healthcare industry or the US military, police departments, government offices, etc. The goal of this project is to highly the resilience and 50 years contributions of the Vietnamese community to our at large San Diego community. 

But we cannot do this alone. We need your help so stay tuned, keep your eye out for that survey, and encourage your friends and neighbors to fill it out. At the 50 years anniversary event, we will find out the fruitful result of our survey.
