Add another organization to the amendment opposition list that Minnesotans United for All Families is building across the state. Last week, the Hmong American Partnership in St. Paul announced that it opposes the marriage amendment on ballots this fall. According to MPR, the Hmong American Partnership is the largest non-profit serving the Hmong community.
President and CEO Bao Vang said the Hmong American Partnership is an inclusive organization that could not ignore an amendment that it believes would limit rights for gay and lesbian members of its community.
“We do not believe in the discrimination of any groups, and Hmong being the minority community, we know how that feels,” Vang said.
While this is good news, unfortunately, amendment supporters are already working with both the Hmong American Alliance Church and the Hmong Village Shopping Center to help build support in the Hmong community.
