  LDS Hmong Woman's Activism Lifts Her Community
An LDS woman in Sacramento is making a difference in her hmong community, helping women and their families make the transition from the traditional hmong culture to a hybrid more acceptable in the US. May Ying Ly was featured in a lengthy and interesting article in the Sacramento Bee outlining the difficulties hmong women face. The organization Ly founded, the Hmong Women's Heritage Association, was recently given a $400,000 grant from The California Endowment to help troubled families and help traditional hmong men bridge the generation gap with their mostly American grandchildren.

  LDS Family's Immigration Nightmare Ends
With the Portland office of the US Immigration and Naturalization Service under fire for its handling of deportations, an LDS couple was able to successfully resolve the threatened deportation of the wife last week, now 11-weeks into a high-risk pregnancy. LDS Church member Susan Williams, 32, a native of Guatemala, was threatened with deportation by the INS, in spite of the fact that she was married to a US citizen and had been a legal resident of the US for eight years.
