She Hlub is a Hmoob womxn focused, intergenerational healing program whose purpose is to end gender-based violence and patriarchy by holding space for Hmoob womxn and girls to explore and build sisterhood together. This space embraces Hmoob womxn's ways of knowing and embodies individual and collective Hmoob womxn identities. Our hope is to cultivate and build the leadership of Hmong womxn and girls as we continue to build a more just Hmoob community that includes the voices of ALL gender indentities.
WHY THIS PROJECT?
A meaningful investment in Hmoob women and girls can and will ensure the preservation of our culture and language, pull our community out of poverty, increase educational attainment, and decrease violence against women and girls.
Through the She Hlub Project, we begin to address gender-based violence in a variety of ways: investing in and building upon the leadership potential of Hmoob women and girls; co-creating a holistic and positive feminine Hmoob identity to empower Hmoob girls and women; and revitalizing our endangered language and culture through and intersectional Indigenous Hmoob Feminist lens.
WHEN: Thursday after school to 7pm
