Dear NAPAWF members,

Last week we introduced you to NAPAWF’s inaugural “Immigration is HERstory and Our Story” campaign by connecting you to the National August Week of Action. It’s been very exciting to hear from NAPAWF sisters interested in getting involved. Please continue to contact us with any questions or for more information about the events!

This week, we want to bring the attention closer to home.

Although we are all united in our belief and advocacy for social justice and humane immigration reform, our communities are also hugely diverse in history, languages and migration stories. To capture these diverse narratives, NAPAWF has created an Immigration Community Survey. The stories of API immigrant women and their families are rarely, if ever, depicted in mainstream media. We hope this community survey will help elevate immigrant API women’s issues and bring attention to the compelling stories that are too often not told.

Please take the next 8-10 minutes to fill out the survey. Together, we can give voice to the most urgent issues facing immigrant API women and girls as comprehensive immigration reform approaches Congress.

For questions about the Immigration is HERstory and Our Story campaign, please contact Lan at

For justice,
