Yer Yang

My name is Yer Yang and I work for the City of Minneapolis as City Council Member Blong Yang's Council Associate. I'm passionate about helping others in professional development and community engagement. As a first generation my upbringing was a cultural clash between traditional Hmong values and American privileges that helped me understand the importance of education, civic engagement, and democracy. I would like to see more women of color participate in the political process and be in elected positions.
