Opening its new office in the South Valley on November 9th, VACLV had a grand opening featuring a ribbon-cutting ceremony, community members, and Commissioner Tick Segerblom.
“I was pleased to join the ribbon cutting and grand opening of the Vietnamese-American Community of Las Vegas office, in beautiful District E. Thank you for the invitation, my office and I look forward to working together!” said Segerblom on Twitter.
According to the the U.S. Census Bureau American Community Survey (ACS), more than 1.95 million Vietnamese immigrants resided in the United States in 2022, representing approximately 3 percent of all 46.2 million U.S. immigrants.
Honoring the Vietnamese culture, many families celebrated with Vietnam veterans, traditional food, and cultural performances. Through this new office, the VACLV aims to uphold cultural preservation, foster civic participation, and enhance the well-being of the Vietnamese American community in Las Vegas.
