General Vang Pao’s Vision Committee Press Release
Fresno, CA. On December 24, 2011, the 2nd Annual Conference of General Vang Pao’s Visions will be held at the Fresno Fairground, Industrial Building, 1121 S. Chance Ave, from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM. This conference focuses on General Vang Pao’s visions outlined on the DVD recorded and interviewed by Pheng Thao and transcribed by Major Dr. Chuedoua Vue. Two thousand DVD’s had been distributed to all conference attendees last December prior to his death. Several thousands of the same DVD’s will be distributed this year during the Hmong International New Year Celebration.
He outlined three major action items the Hmong people must do to achieve prosperity and harmony in the US and throughout the world.
1. The Hmong people must research and clearly identify “what are the right actions to take” and “what are the wrong actions to take.”
2. The Hmong people must promote love, respect, unity, forgiveness, and coordinated actions toward a well defined purpose.
3. The Hmong people must focus and invest in long term to gain prosperity and sustainable growth and measureable progress year over year.
In addition, this conference will focus on issues relating to Hmong marriage in California. For example, Hmong in California cannot agree on a certain set of price for a bride dowry. Different families ask for different price ranging $5000 to $8000 depending on negotiation between two sides of the families. This issue must resolve in California among the Hmong clan representatives.
