The Little Mekong Night Market is free and open to the public, happening on August 7th from 6PM-Midnight and August 8th from 4PM-Midnight along University & Western Ave in Saint Paul, Minnesota.  For more information, go here or email arts@littlemekong.com.

Running Home documentary comes to Minneapolis

Meet us at the movies, readers! Co-sponsored by Little Laos on the Prairie, Running Home will be screening this Friday, June 19th, 2015 at 7:00PM at Sushi Tango located at 3001 Hennepin Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55408. Q&A with the amazing Lao American women of the film will follow. Running Home follows Lao American ultra marathon runner, Nang Dunn on a personal journey: a goal to come full circle and cross the finish line in the village where she grew up as a child. She teams up with runners Nancy Southasarn and Sirivanh Ketavong on a anti-trafficking campaign that evolved to become the first ever ultra marathon relay in Laos, spanning 130 miles across 3 provinces in 3 days. All proceeds will benefit survivors of human trafficking and the next Run Laos Challenge hosted by Village Run Foundation and Village Focus International.
