Reasons for the Protests

Under the leadership of ChuPheng Lee

        Loss of all social service programs of LFCM

        Stealing the Hmong community’s ownership of the Hmong New Year celebrations and the Hmong 4th of July Festivals to be privately owned for life by ChuePheng Lee and his selected trustees of LFF

        Financial corruption

        Violation of the rights of the Hmong people, who voted to elected ChuePheng Lee the board president of LFCM

        Violation of the principles of nonprofit organizations

        ChuPheng Lee and his Organizational cronies MUST GO!

Lao Family Community of Minnesota, Inc. Founded in 1977

-          to provide social services for the needy people in the Twin Cities

        to co-host the Hmong two cultural events: the Hmong New Year celebrations and the Hmong 4th of July Festivals

        In 2008, LFCM had $3.6 million funding several social service programs employed by 39 staff members

        Since 2008, under the leadership of Ka Houa Yang and then ChuPheng Lee, the LFCM’s funding and programs were cut off

        LFCM is now dead in providing social service programs

        ChuPheng Lee and his organizational cronies MUST GO!

Financial Corruption

ChuPheng Lee and his board members, instead of directing the social service programs, have focused on the Hmong two cultural events that have generated thousands of profits each celebration

These Hmong community’s monies were mismanaged

In 2010, $89,961.89 were missing under the leadership of Ka Houa Yang and ChuPheng Lee

ChuPheng Lee and his organizational cronies MUST GO!

The Office of the Attorney General

In 2012, because of financial corruption committed by ChuPheng Lee and board members, the Office of Attorney General of Minnesota terminated the LFCM’s right to co-host the Hmong two cultural events

So do ChuPheng Lee and his organizational cronies MUST GO!

Lao Family Foundation

In 2012, without consulting and approval of the Hmong who voted to elect ChuPheng Lee the board president of LFCM, he and his selected board members founded the Lao Family Foundation to own the Hmong two cultural events, controlled for life by ChuPheng Lee and his cronies—a violation of the Hmong culture, norms, and values

ChuPheng Lee and is organizational cronies MUST GO!

Founding the LFF without notification of the Hmong community who voted to elect ChuPheng Lee the board president of LFCM, ChuPheng violated the fundamental principle of the consent of the voters

ChuPheng Lee and his organizational cronies MUST GO!

ChuPheng Lee Violated Nonprofit Laws

ChuPheng Lee simultaneously serves the board presidents of both the LFCM and LFF and self-appointed trustee of LFF

Holding 3 leadership positions of the two nonprofit organizations at the same time, ChuPheng Lee grossly violated the nonprofit principles of conflict of interests

ChuPheng Lee and his cronies MUST GO!

Conclusion

Because of

        the death of all LFCM’s social service programs

        stealing the Hmong community’s ownership of the Hmong New Year celebrations and the Hmong 4th of July Festivals to be personally owned by ChuPheng Lee and his cronies

        financial corruption committed ChuPheng Lee and his organizational cronies

        Violation of the basic principles of the consent of the Hmong voters

        Violation of the principles of nonprofit organizations

ChuPheng Lee and his organizational cronies MUST GO!
