People's Advisory Board (Pab/Helping)

Submit an application today! Limited Seats!

Our community members are our greatest asset when building a vibrant Hmong and BIPOC community.

The People's Advisory Board is a body that provides non-binding strategic advice to the PABNEEG. The informal nature of this advisory board will give us greater flexibility in structure and management compared to the board of directors.

The People Advisory Board will meet ad hoc and quarterly to remain updated and give educated feedback and insight to the PABNEEG Board of Directors.

Being a member of the PABNEEG Advisory Board provides you with a unique opportunity to:

  • Contribute to the success of the local Hmong and BIPOC community.
  • Assist in program design by providing vital input and influencing our solutions roadmap.
  • Promote your expertise, knowledge, and services you provide.
  • Be our ambassadors and effectively spread the word about PABNEEG's program services, events, fundraisers, etc.
  • Expand your network and meet people with similar interests.

PABNEEG is a dynamic organization that will need the support and input of the community.

Best Regards,

YangMee Lor

B.S.B.A. | Leadership
Executive Director

I am a domestic violence and suicide survivor. The pain in my past is what propels me forward and gives me the energy to work hard towards the goals of PABNEEG. For the past several years, I have been working with some amazing nonprofit organizations as a Board Member (Colorado Dragon Boat, Asian Chamber Foundation, National Lao-Hmong Memorial Foundation, Asian Corporate and Entrepreneur Leaders) and have learned a lot from them!

Building a firm foundation for our local Hmong & BIPOC community has always been a passion of mine. Our future generations rely on the effort we undertake now to ensure a healthy Hmong & BIPOC community in Colorado. I won't be able to complete this task on my own. PABNEEG is excited to contribute to the creation of a robust network and community founded on trust and compassion.

Jacky Lor

Owner of Denver Love Dental

Hello! Jacky here! I was born in California, but raised in Minnesota. I have a degree in early childhood education. Why change to dentistry you ask? Well, besides being able to work with Dr. Aaron, I also enjoy helping patients, but in different ways. I like to view myself as the patient’s advocate. As someone who didn’t go to the dentist, I understand the fear or worries people have. I am here to let all our patients know that it is never too late to start, and that you will not be judged here. I’ve got your back.

As small business owners, my husband and I would like to help share our experiences with others who are seeking to become a dentist or start their own small business.
