73rd Commemoration of Karen Martyrs’ Day

August 12 - August 13

Join us in the 73rd commemoration of Karen Martyr’s Day, It will be held this year on August 12th and 13th to commemorate the anniversary of the death of Saw Ba U Gyi (one of the early leaders of the Karen National Union) in 1950. Others who have fought for the Karen are also honored in remembrance of the Karen resistance.

This year, Minnesota’s Karen community will commemorate the event in Austin, MN, about a 2 hour drive from Saint Paul. Many Karen families live in the towns of Austin and neighboring Albert Lea, and leaders hope to see many of our Southern MN families as well as Saint Paul residents coming together.
