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.
