Community Tour:
Southeast Asian Community in the Bronx



Chinatown, Sunset Park, Jackson Heights, and Flushing. Whenever anyone thinks of Asian American enclaves, places like these come to mind. But what about the Bronx?

For over 20 years, the Bronx has been home to the Southeast Asian community with 46% of Cambodian New Yorkers and 22% of Vietnamese New Yorkers living in the borough. Despite their long history in our City, many community members still face challenges, including lack of in-language and culturally relevant services, resources to combat the high drop out rate, access to programs to help residents build more stable lives, and much more.

The Asian American Federation and Mekong invite you on a tour to meet the community leaders, students, small business owners, and many others who are empowering residents to participate in creating a more vibrant borough.

Thursday, August 15
4 – 6pm

Tour Starting Point:
Mekong
2431 Morris Ave
4, B, or D Train to Fordham Road

Please RSVP to myungmaaf@gmail.com by August 13

Please note that space is limited.
