Hnub Tshiab: Hmong Women Achieving Together (HWAT) consists of an all-volunteer and working board of directors. The organization strives to mobilize Hmong women and girls to actively engage and participate in their families and communities to elevate the status of Hmong women and girls and to shape their own lives. HWAT selects projects that cast a wide net towards the community to change in ways that will be more inclusive of Hmong women and girls at the decision making tables, and to inform others about the plight of Hmong women and girls, and improve opportunities for their voices to be sought out, heard, and their issues, championed.
