HAFA is a social justice organization that is committed to advancing the economic, social and cultural prosperity of Hmong American farmers through advocacy, economic development, capacity building and research. HAFA uses an organizing approach to work with its members and other farmers in the Hmong community to access land, equipment, capital and trainings so they can improve their farming operations and lift their families out of poverty. As a member-based organization, HAFA was started by and is led by Hmong American farmers. The organization’s primary short-term goal is to generate more income and self-efficacy for Hmong farming families, while its long-term goal is to build wealth and through land ownership and cooperative practices.
