M I S S I O N Women on the Border’s mission is to raise awareness of the impact of U.S. and global policies and practices that strip the universal human rights and affect living conditions of women, gender minorities, people of color, workers, indigenous peoples, immigrants and youth. We support movements to reclaim and construct human dignity and justice for all.
Our history as a small nonprofit since 2001 reflects a commitment to advance social justice education. Initially, we supported the empowerment of women working in the NAFTA factories who endure sexual harassment, disrespect, exposure to toxicity on the job, wage theft and firing or blacklisting for daring to organize for reform.
After the election of 2016 our mission has been expanded to raise awareness about other issues surrounding life and injustice at the Mexican border.
