Hmong Governors Forum
As the November 2nd general election nears, it is increasingly important that we make sure the candidates we elect recognize that governing our state means co-governing with us – the diverse people of Minnesota. To make a better Minnesota, our next governor needs to be in conversation with all of our communities, especially those who struggle against racial, economic, and social barriers. Our Hmong community is 70,000 strong, but has traditionally been excluded from the table. Now is the time for this to change.
Join us at the Hmong Governor’s Forum on Saturday, October 9, from 9:00 to 11:30 a.m. at Hmong American Partnership, 1075 Arcade St, Saint Paul.
Learn where Senator Mark Dayton and other candidates stand on the issues that are important to our Hmong community.
We are all in this together, and here in Minnesota that includes our Hmong community. RSVP to join us on Saturday to show the candidates how important it is for all of us that Hmong issues are addressed because we all do better when we all do better.
To RSVP or ask questions please contact Tsong Sawh Lo at 612-270-5256, [email protected] or Phialoung Yang at 651-399-8100 at [email protected].

Me thinks me know why Take Action Minnesota is so infatuated with the issue of the cost of Hmong funeral homes as a ‘progressive’ issue.
There’s now a direct and public link between Take Action’s Hmong community agenda and an organization formed to do away with Hmong cultural and religious rituals and practices as we know it. That organization is called, Poj Koob Yawm Ntxwv, and to no one’s surprise, the Minnesota Chapter is headed by the above Take Action leader, Mr. Tsong Sawh Lo.
“Poj Koob Yawm Ntxwv (PKYN) is a 501 (c) (3) Hmong faith based organization. Our praise start with the word “Niam” Mother and end with “Tsheej Xeeb” true form. Our purpose is to simplify (Hmong) animist religion so that it reflect both wo/man.”
Take Action and Poj Koob Yawm Ntxwv? Take Action and Lao Family? Take Action and 18 Clan Council? Take Action and Hmong Republicans? What’s next, Take Action and Tea Party Express?
Take Action, where has all your ‘progressive’ agenda gone???
