In honor of Earth Day, the Vietnamese American High School Alliance is taking action and helping the community one step at a time!

What is Little Saigon Clean-Up (LSC)?
The Little Saigon Clean Up was first hosted in 1993 by the Vietnamese American Coalition (VAC) at UC Irvine in order to change Little Saigon’s reputation at the time as being one of the top ten dirtiest tourist attractions in Orange County (Source: OC Register). Since then, VAC has been hosting the event annually and the tradition continues today, serving as a reminder of how much Little Saigon has evolved since 1993. VAHSA has taken up the torch and begun hosting the annual LSC since 2014.
