About the Organization

Justice for Migrant Women is a cutting-edge organization committed to protecting and advancing the civil and human rights of migrant women. Women migrate around the world to pursue economic opportunities and/or to flee violence and other conditions that make it impossible for them to remain in their countries of origin. Women also migrate from state to state or region to region within their own countries. Often, as women cross regional and global borders to find work and other security, they are subjected to a range of injustices and instability.

Justice for Migrant Women was founded on the premise that all women who migrate, and their families, deserve justice, safety, security, and freedom to live without fear of violence. We seek to secure and protect rights for migrant women through a range of strategies, including policy and administrative advocacy, public education, and research.

We have a number of key initiatives, and expanded our work even further at the onset of COVID-19. Our major initiatives include: educating lawmakers and other officials about the discrimination & violence suffered by migrant women at work and in migration, safety for child farm laborers, equal pay and other general labor protections; educating the public about migrant women’s rights and the rights violations they experience; rural civic engagement initiative focusing on the needs of migrant women and other marginalized community members to help ensure that political leaders consider their priorities; culture shift and narrative work centering migrant women, their families and experiences to create content accurately representing the lived experiences of migrant community members; and building power and making change through multi-sector and multi-ethnic collaborations to create issue-focused organizing spanning or reaching multiple workforces.
