50 Years Anniversary

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Fall of Saigon and the birth of Little Saigon (April 30, 1975 - April 30, 2025), Little Saigon San Diego anticipate publishing a special edition highlighting the development of the Vietnamese community. This edition will showcase the journey of arriving with only the clothes on our backs to our present achievements.

To accomplish this, we seek your assistance. Over the next few months, we will circulate a survey aimed at gathering data from all Vietnamese residents. This data will provide a comprehensive view of the Vietnamese community in San Diego County, including statistics such as the number of Vietnamese Americans in healthcare, the military, police departments, government offices, and more. The objective of this initiative is to underscore the resilience and 50-year contributions of the Vietnamese community to the larger San Diego community.

However, we cannot achieve this without your participation. Please stay informed and watch out for the survey, and encourage your friends and neighbors to participate as well. At the 50th anniversary event, we will unveil the impactful results of our survey.
