Big Read: Hmong American Farmers Association (HAFA) Online
Janssen Hang is the Executive Director and a Co-Founder of the Hmong American Farmers Association (HAFA), a membership-based nonprofit that was created to advance economic prosperity for Minnesota based Hmong farmers and their families. Using a racial equity and community wealth building model, HAFA works with farmers to develop cooperatives that facilitate access to land, new markets, business development, trainings and research opportunities.
Join Janssen this coming week as he discusses the importance of sustainable agriculture and its lasting effects on our local ecological systems. Furthermore, Janssen will also be covering the crucial roles that immigrant farmers play in our local food systems and how their collective actions are key to creating true, unhindered community wealth.
