Despite having to overcome cultural and institutional hurdles, Hmong women continue to make incredible strides in shaping the industries and communities they are a part of. While many are reaching new heights and breaking glass ceilings, many barriers persists to equal opportunity, authentic empowerment and self-reliance.
According to the US Census, in the Hmong community, women make up 53.6% of Millennials and 66.3% of elders 65 and older. Thus, HIP is partnering with local organizations to highlight the tremendous achievements of Hmong women, to initiate an intergenerational dialogue about the current state of the Hmong community and provide a voter empowerment clinic to ensure Hmong women of every generation are civilly engaged.
Doors open at 1PM and the program will begin promptly at 2PM.
