MN Hmong Chamber of Commerce
Yao Yang listens to businesspeople in the Hmong community and helps them access resources, whether they need expertise in legal, financial, or technology services. In 2020 and 2021, she’s helping businesses cope with the pandemic and work on their rebuilding efforts. Many Hmong businesses in St. Paul and Minneapolis were damaged or destroyed in the aftermath of George Floyd’s killing. Yang, who also works for the Saint Paul Area Chamber of Commerce, is going beyond the private sector to aid Hmong businesses; to deal with the scope of the Hmong community’s financial challenges, she’s also advocating for funds from public officials and philanthropic leaders.

Lindsey Kerr
Executive Director

Lindsey Kerr is the Executive Director of LifeLine Pilots, a non-profit based in Peoria, Illinois but serving 10 states in the Midwest, including Minnesota.  Since 1981, LifeLine Pilots has facilitated free air transportation to passengers with medical or humanitarian needs.  Medical care is expensive—oftentimes, life-saving procedures and surgeries can be prohibitively so.  Through volunteer pilots, LifeLine Pilots enables all patients to receive the most cutting-edge treatments from far-away hospitals.  Lindsey believes that everyone, regardless of income, should have equal access to healthcare.  By removing the transportation barrier, LifeLine Pilots helps to ease the financial burden put on families during times of medical uncertainty.  

Lindsey has dedicated her professional life to the non-profit sector.  A year and a half ago she brought her fundraising and communication skills to LifeLine Pilots and is helping the organization to expand its outreach throughout their 10-state region.  Only 5% of those in need of free flights for medical care far from home use our service because they don't know we exist. Learning about LifeLine Pilots and telling others could make a life-saving difference!  Lindsey will share with us who LifeLine Pilots is, the impact it has on its passengers and volunteers, and what you can do to help tell others about this amazing service.
