Welcomes you to the Official Website of the LACF of Florida and to tell you about their unique community located here in Tampa Bay, part of a larger national community of the People of Laos, 

There are many parts to this story of the Lao people.  Who they were before the war,  existing in an agrarian landlocked culture, and upended by a cruel and devastating ’Silent and Secret War’ with hundreds of thousands killed.  

Many went into concentration camps by the Viet Cong. the Pathet LAO  and those who left LAO struggled for years in the refugee camps on the borders of Thailand awaiting resettlement.  We know what brought them here, now we’ll also tell you their hopes and their dreams for the future.  

This is more than a website, or a facebook page, a you-tube or instagram, this is an insight to a culture that has survived tremendous odds against them and pressing on to go  forward and the past, the present and the future. 


www.LACFFLORIDA.com is the voice of the LACF emanating in TAMPA BAY Florida. They are a non-profit 501 (C) (3) organization and was established in 2014 to preserve LAO Heritage and Culture and to represent the interest of their diverse community.
