Building Our Community
Hmong in the Chippewa Valley
This three part series dives deep into the history of Hmong people in China, their participation in the Secret War, their immigration journey to the United States, and finally, the experiences of Hmong residents here in the Chippewa Valley.
This series will be facilitated by three emerging Hmong women-owned consulting businesses: CML Consulting, Roots Consulting, and KV Consulting. Collectively, they have invested over 20 years of community engagement here in the Eau Claire area, specializing in EDI, Hmong language and culture, and capacity-building training.
