DWN member @NLIRH calls for stories on gender & immigration enforcement
via Anjela Jenkins
The National Coalition for Immigrant Women’s Rights (NCIWR) will soon be releasing a white paper highlighting some of the challenges that immigrant women face in their daily lives, as well as in immigration detention and with the immigration “enforcement” system.
While we already have some personal stories spotlighted in our report, we wanted to reach out one last time to you all to see if any of you have clients willing to share their stores about experiences with law enforcement, accessing public benefits, being separated from partners or children (including separation of same-sex partners and of same-sex couples from their children), or sex/gender-identity-specific abuse in detention.
Please feel free to contact me (Anjela@latinainstitute.org) if you have stories you’d like to share or if your organization is interested in joining NCIWR and forming part of a community of advocates who work deliberately at the intersection of gender and immigration issues.
