NAPAWF*Sacramento Hunger Challenge: June 11th-15th
Could you live on a food budget of $22 a week or just $4 a day? NAPAWF*Sacramento is joining Assemblymember Yamada and the California Association of Food Banks in the annual Hunger Challenge 2012 from Monday-Friday, June 11-15, 2012 to promote awareness of hunger and promote enrollment for CalFresh benefits. California has the lowest CalFresh enrollment rate in the nation. In Sacramento County, we have over 45,000 eligible individuals who are not enrolled which results in $109 million loss in benefits. The great majority of recipients are from communities of color and are from families with women as the head of household. NAPAWF*Sacramento is inviting you to take this challenge with us and post your photos, write your reflections and share your resources on our facebook page or with the hashtag #Hunger2012 and #napawf. We will compile each day’s posts here on our NAPAWF*Sac website!

NAPAWF*Sacramento Celebrating 15 years of making history in the Asian Pacific Islander Women Movement
As NAPAWF reflects on the last 15 years of our organizational history and remembers the trailblazers that have made this longevity possible, NAPAWF*Sacramento will present “15 Historically Significant Moments in Asian and Pacific Islander Women History” over the course of the week of December 5, 2011.
Earlier this Fall, NAPAWF Bay Area profiled 15 of the fiercest Asian and Pacific Islander women leaders among us today, as nominated by their peers. We learned about their passions, the people who inspire them and the movements they lead. NAPAWF*Sacramento was inspired to build on this momentum by taking a look back in history and trace some of our roots as Asian American women. We hope that this will provide a renewed perspective for some, a refresher for others and, ultimately, ignite collective action to build a movement for social justice and human rights for all Asian and Pacific Islander women and girls.
“15 Historically Significant Moments in Asian and Pacific Islander Women History” Begins Here
