On October 20, Vietnamese and Latinx community members from VietRISE and the National Day Laborer Organizing Network (NDLON) are hosting a daylong community festival in the heart of Little Saigon in Orange County, California: “We Celebrate Sanctuary Here: Bring Human Rights Home!” that will bring the Vietnamese, Latinx, and immigrant communities together in support of inclusion, compassion, and solidarity.
With this cross-cultural festival, we are building toward what we know is possible - that all communities deserve dignity and human rights - that the power to defeat the forces of hate and fear is in our hands, in our words, and in our voices. And that we can achieve this together.
We invite you to join us in song, culture, and arts to a festival that celebrates the true meaning of community and sanctuary - a place of safety and freedom, that honors and respects who you are and where you came from.
This event is free and open to the public.
