KAYING YANG
KaYing Yang, the Executive Director of the Southeast Asia Resource Action Center (SEARAC), was formerly the Executive Director of the Women's Association of Hmong and Lao (WAHL) of St. Paul, Minnesota, a mutual assistance association. A community activist and advocate, Ms. Yang participates in the activities of many civil rights organizations whose mission is to increase the visibility of Asian Pacific American communities locally and nationally. She is a founding member of the Minnesota and Washington, DC chapters of the National Asian Pacific American Women's Forum (NAPAWF), the Hmong Women's Educational Association of Colorado (HWEAC), and the Laotian American National Alliance (LANA). She currently sits on the board of the Asian Pacific American Advisory Committee to the Gates Millennium Scholars Program (GMSP), National Council of Asian Pacific Americans (NCAPA), National Immigration Forum (NIF), Refugees International (RI), LANA, and the Charity Lobbying in the Public Sector (CLPI). In 1998, Ms. Yang was featured by the St. Paul Pioneer Press newspaper as one of ninety-nine people to watch in 1999. She was also named one of the 500 most influential Asian Americans by Avenue Asia magazine in 1995. In that same year, Ms. Yang was a leading organizer of a group of twelve Hmong women from across the country to participate in the United Nations Fourth World Conference on Women and the Non-Governmental Organization Forum in China. She has traveled extensively in the United States and Southeast Asia to speak about the Hmong American experience and diaspora, as well as to learn about the globalization of refugees and the internally displaced people. A frequently invited speaker and panelist at conferences, seminars and educational symposia throughout the United States, in May of 2000 she joined other Asian American leaders who traveled to Israel as guests of Project Interchange, an international program sponsored by the American Jewish Committee. She has also been quoted in local and national media, and interviews of her life experiences appear in Warrior Lessons, by Phoebe Eng and Women's Untold Stories, Breaking Silence, Talking Back, Voicing Complexity, edited by Mary Romero & Abigail J. Stewart. In 2000 Ms. Yang was the recipient of the National Hmong Women's Leadership Award given by the Hmong Women's Action Team in recognition of her leadership to improve the status of Hmong women and girls. Ms. Yang holds a BA in Sociology from the University of Colorado at Boulder. Ms. Yang and her family came to Columbus, Ohio in July of 1976, as refugees from Laos. Her parents, brother, and sister-in-law and two nephews recently made Minnesota their new home state.

KaYing Yang, executive director of the Southeast Asia Resource Action Center, said the changes in the parolee law are good, but Congress needs to modify it further, to allow all parolees who qualify to obtain green cards.
''We are very happy that they put out the regulations, but we'd like to see Congress expand that number,'' she said.


Successful New Americans Project (SNAP) Press Release

www.searac.org [cached]

It’s about giving people the tools they need in order to take charge of their own destinies — not about giving hand-outs," reports SEARAC Executive Director KaYing Yang, who fled from Laos as a young girl in 1976.
"One of the most important things about SNAP is that it is locally based and will be managed within the target communities. This will ensure that the project will be especially responsive to client needs. SNAP is also innovative because it will foster productive working relationships between national and community-based organizations, and because it will help some of the nation’s most successful new Americans to teach other new immigrants and refugees the secrets of their success," Ms. Yang adds. Such a program is sorely needed, according to Ms. Yang.

KaYing Yang Resigns As Executive Director of SEARAC
Formal letter of resignation and farewell from Executive Director KaYing Yang. Please find enclosed a letter from KaYing Yang, Executive Director of SEARAC, announcing her resignation. KaYing has done an outstanding job, leading SEARAC through a transition from an organization respected for its work on behalf of refugees from Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam, to its present position as a nationally-known advocacy group for Southeast Asian Americans. In addition, through hard work she has achieved a stable funding base - a great accomplishment in these difficult times. We will miss her leadership and her energy, but as she states, she is committed to remaining a part of SEARAC.
