THE STORY:

FREEDOM INC wrote -

A network of community change agents across the United States and Southeast Asia launched Building Our Future (BOF) in 2013 as a movement platform to focus on community-first efforts across the globe towards ending gender-based violence and building safe, strong, and thriving families.

In March 2015 we convened 30 community advocates from Thailand, China, Laos, Vietnam and the US in Thailand to begin connecting our work globally. At this gathering we explored how we could build global solidarity in order to make deep cultural shifts. We considered what else might be needed to dramatically change the practices that negatively impact Hmong women and girls’ lives across the globe because we have witnessed how oppressive gender practices are exported from country to country, disproportionately having negative impacts of young people and women.

We found great value in our time together and now are organizing a Global Hmong Women's Summit that includes more countries and brings more people in order to grow a movement that builds international solidarity to transform harmful practices. 

We ask for your support to make this first Global Hmong Women’s Summit possible. We aim to hold the Summit in Thailand in December 2016 if we can raise the funds needed. 

We know that building strong and thriving communities free of gender-based violence takes all of us.

Thank you for your support!
