Advocate the Hmong Community


International Educational Development, Inc. and the Association of Humanitarian Lawyers have been concerned for some about the dire situation of the Hmong people in the Lao People’s Democratic Republic (hereinafter Laos). Our home state California has welcomed tens of thousands of the Hmong refugees who first began to flee Laos at the end of the Vietnam War and who continue to flee, seeking asylum due to persecution and other gross violations of human rights. The Hmong people still in Laos are at grave risk of extermination.

Brief Background Of The Situation

The Hmong people in Laos have as their traditional homeland the areas in and around what was known as the Ho Chi Minh Trail. The United States began covert actions against the Pathet Lao forces as early as the Kennedy Administration before the United States entered into the war in Vietnam. The Pathet Lao opposed the government of Laos at the time and supported the government of North Vietnam. The Hmong formed military forces and aided the United States in operations against the Pathet Lao. In 1968 the United States began an air war and other military actions against the Pathet Lao forces along the Ho Chi Minh Trail and elsewhere in the Hmong areas. The Hmong continued to aid the United States forces.

The Story Of The Hmong People Mong

The United Hmong Vision, Inc. is formed by a group of Hmong individuals including Hmong community leaders and educators. This organization was registered in the state of California as a non-profit organization 501©4 status.
Our vision is to create a road map or new leadership model to lead the Hmong in bringing the Hmong Human Rights Violation case in Laos to get the international community’s attention and submitting it to the Human Rights Council in Geneva to seek a solution between the Hmong and the Lao PDR government. On the other hand, we want to organize Hmong in America to become a strong community.
