April 30, 1975 marks the Fall of Saigon, an event that sparked the mass exodus of Vietnamese refugees from Vietnam and led to the creation of Vietnamese communities around the world. Black April is our flagship event to commemorate this historic moment and honor the sacrifices of those who fled a war-torn nation in search of security, opportunity, and freedom.

Please join us for our annual commemoration, which will be held virtually at 6pm on April 30, 2021. Our program will be streamed from our Facebook page. Please visit our event page for more information.

We have received many messages of support from our local elected officials, and we are grateful for the continued support of our policy makers. We share them here in advance of our program, and to show our appreciation for the uplifting messages of our allies.

One thought on “46th Anniversary of the Fall of Saigon – Virtual Black April Commemoration

  1. Truly a sad day. Nixon was lied to by the Democrats who blocked his attempts to abide by the Paris Accords that stated if the North attacked the South Vietnamese government the US would send in troops. At the same time the same Democrats blocked re-supply of the ARVAN troops.

    Note the initial attack was stopped by the ARVAN and it was not until they ran out of munitions their effort started to crumble.
