ACT: Sign On to Statement of Principles on Women and Immigration Reform COB FRI Jan 25


 

Dear Colleagues,

 

Attached please find the National Coalition for Immigrant Women's Rights (NCIWR) Statement of Principles on Women and Immigration Reform. As you may be aware, there are 5 million undocumented women presently living in the United States, and women now comprise the majority of the immigrant population. Yet past efforts at immigration reform would have excluded many women from a pathway to citizenship, and failed to provide women with the critical protection, services, and opportunities they deserve.  

 

This Statement of Principles calls on policymakers to ensure that immigration reform is inclusive of and responsive to the unique needs and concerns of women. We hope that it will open the space for greater consideration - and participation - of women in the immigration conversation.  We invite your organizational sign by COB Friday, January 25.

 

To sign-on, please complete this online Google Form. Please include your name and email address on the form so we can follow-up with you. Please note that your organization does not need to be a member of NCIWR to sign-on.

 

Please share! We hope to get broad support on this letter, both from within and outside of the immigrant rights community, so please circulate and share with your networks.
