Mission Statement

The mission of the Hmong American Farmers Association (HAFA) is to advance the prosperity of Hmong farmers through cooperative endeavors, capacity building and advocacy. HAFA was started and is led by family farmers and uses community organizing to do its work.

Description

HAFA’s work is grounded in strong communitarian values and based around a Whole Food Model, which acknowledges that all aspects of the farm-to-fork system must be addressed simultaneously to truly build intergenerational and community wealth. There are five distinct but interrelated components in the model: land access, new markets, trainings and capacity building, financing, and research and data collection. What makes HAFA’s model unique is that it works with cohorts of experienced Hmong farmers and employs community organizing tactics to truly get at systems change.

I think this opportunity should be listed under Hastings as the location. Since there does not seem to be a local St. Paul opportunity available for this group.
