Thank you for taking the pledge

Immigration Reform

Our current immigration system is outdated and disproportionately harms women. We believe in common sense immigration policies that will keep families together and allow millions of immigrant women to thrive. Undocumented immigrant women are concentrated in low-wage jobs and lack access to benefits such as health care, are vulnerable to domestic violence and workplace abuse, and live in fear of being separated from their families. We need immigration policies that ensure relief from detention and deportations that tear families and communities apart; a pathway to citizenship that facilitates family reunification and recognizes contributions made by immigrant women; protections for immigrant women workers and survivors of violence and trafficking; and access to healthcare for immigrant women and their families.

Criminal Justice Reform

The criminal justice system--from policing and sentencing, to mass incarceration and barriers to reentry-- is rooted in inequality and abuse, with a disproportionate impact on communities of color and low-income communities. Women of color are overrepresented in jails and prisons, and also bear the brunt of the impact of incarceration on children and families. We need a justice system that supports, not erodes, community safety. This includes dismantling the school-to-prison pipeline; ending racial profiling and stop and frisk policies; police accountability and increased training; reforming mandatory minimum sentencing, especially related to the ‘war on drugs’; ending privatization of prisons; supporting women’s reproductive health access while incarcerated; ending discrimination and abuse of LGBTQ people; and promoting successful reentry for individuals and their families.
