Upcoming Events & Updates


2020 Census / Thống Kê Dân Số: We are launching a civic engagement campaign to make sure all Vietnamese residents living in Little Saigon are counted in the 2020 Census. We are ensuring that our communities get the funding we need for our schools, healthcare, housing, and more for the next 10 years. Want to volunteer with us? Contact Vincent at vincent@vietrise.org.

Immigration: We launched our #BringHumanRightsHome and #ICEoutofLittleSaigon campaigns to defend human rights for migrants and refugees, here at home in OC and at the border, and our state sanctuary laws that make immigrant and refugee communities safe.
