Minnesota has long prided itself as being a state that accepts refugees and immigrants with open arms. 40 years ago the first Hmong refugees arrived in Minnesota; today they help define Minnesota in a deeply unique and powerful way. There are countless other groups, from a variety of backgrounds and faiths, that have found Minnesota to be a welcoming home. They have had an invaluable role in building the culture of Minnesota and helping it become one of the most livable and affluent states in the entire country.
