Reports surfaced earlier this week that the Trump administration is seeking to deport thousands of Hmong and Lao U.S. residents to Laos. Today on the show, we discuss this news and the history of Hmong and Lao communities in Wisconsin with Kabzuag Vaj, co-founder and co-executive director of Freedom, Inc.
Kabzuag Vaj was born in Laos and came to this country as a refugee child with her mother and siblings. She is co-founder and co-executive director of Freedom, Inc., which works with low-income communities of color in Dane County.
