While the majority of the Hmong have been in the United States for more than 40 years; many Hmong refugees have still not been naturalized due to various reasons.  The Hmong fought for the United States during the Secret War in Laos and were forced to leave their homeland to avoid oppression; and started arriving in the US in the early 70’s.

The Hmong American Partnership of the Fox Cities serves refugees throughout the Fox Valley area and recognized the needs of some Hmong families to prepare for the US naturalization process.  Executive Director, Nao Bee Yang, holds an instructional class every Tuesday and Thursday from 6 pm to 8 pm for members of our Hmong community.  He graciously gives his time to help educate those who have limited English communication skills.  The goal is to work and practice all 100 questions by the end of the 10 week course, and hopefully maximize the chances of passing the actual US Naturalization test.

This class is part of an initiative from HAP to provide free and instructional workshops for members of the community.  Our objective is to invest back into our community by helping educate our citizens.

Call the Hmong American Partnership at 920-739-3192 to sign up for future classes or find out how you can assist to make a difference.

Executive Director Nao Bee Yang shares a laugh with his class.
