Stand with Immigrant Mothers

Breaking News

This Mother’s Day, the National Coalition for Immigrant Women’s Rights is writing to ask you to join with us in honoring immigrant women and mothers. This year we have partnered in a Mother's Day promotional effort with the Strong Families campaign, which seeks to expand our nation's preconceptions about the definition of family. We hope you will be able to be a leader in this effort.

The voices of women immigrants are often missing from the public debates about these issues. We invite you to publicize principles on your website, prioritize these critical issues in your organizational work and communications. And in your regular communications with organizational supporters (e-newsletters, Facebook, twitter, etc.) you can include information about the important intersection of women’s rights and immigrant rights.
