HAWA is very excited to announce the first ever art gallery showing in Milwaukee. Over the years, HAWA has accumulated many art pieces that were created not only from victims and survivors, but from local artists who desired to shine the light on the lives of these women. With leadership from HAWA’s Sexual Assualt Coordinator, Joua Yang, HAWA is excited to announce their first art gallery showing in Milwaukee, where the art pieces celebrating Hmong sisters can be shared.
With the generous space donation by the Walkers Point Center for the Arts, HAWA is deeply encouraged and thankful that the center understands our mission and has allowed us a beautiful place to showcase and celebrate the lives of Hmong women. Walkers Point Center for the Arts is a nonprofit organization that supports visual arts, performing arts, multicultural learning, and education.

Some featured pieces in the exhibition will include:
- The Paj Yeeb Project

Come join and honor with us the lives of these many women. Through events like this, we will be able to join hands to empower our community.
