Re "Domestic violence prompts self-critique by Hmong" (Our Region, Sept. 8) I applaud Hmong leaders, who gathered to address the problem of domestic violence.
Domestic violence is a worldwide issue. In the United States, more than 12 million people are affected by intimate partner violence each year. Hmong leaders have taken a very important step, standing up to domestic violence and letting the community know that they do not stand alone.
