Thank you for taking the pledge

Immigration Reform

Immigrants’ rights are women’s rights. The majority of immigrants in the US are women and children, and millions of immigrant women, who are an integral part of the fabric of our communities, cannot achieve their full potential due to failed immigration policies.

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.

Our current immigration system is outdated and disproportionately harms women. We need immigration policies that ensure:

  • Relief from detentions 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;
  • Access to healthcare for immigrant women and their families;
  • Promotion of immigrant integration that includes and empowers women.

Criminal Justice Reform

Gun Violence

  • Women are disproportionately victimized by gun violence – over half of women murdered with guns are killed by intimate partners or family members.
  • We demand for criminal background checks for all gun purchases, including at gun shows and via the internet; a ban on military-style assault weapons and high-capacity magazines; a federal anti-gun-trafficking statute with real, hefty penalties to crack down on straw purchases.

Mass Incarceration

  • All states must reduce the number of people in jails and prisons and the sentences they serve.
  • Savings from criminal justice reforms must be combined with investments in job training and subsidized employment services in order to provide the foundation necessary to help individuals and their families success prior to system involvement and upon reentry.
  • We must reduce barriers to reentry including access to critical resources such as housing, employment, and public benefits  and eliminate unfair fees, fines, and debt.
