WOMEN ON THE BORDER’S primary mission is to expand awareness of how American free trade and immigration law and policy in today’s global economy, and their role in American consumerism play a role in the absence of living wages, safe communities and decent and healthy working conditions for women, migrants and children at the Mexican border.   While our primary focus has been on the impact of the maquiladora industries spawned by the North American Free Trade Agreement,  the labor and human rights issues surrounding the effects of “free trade”  are universal and the education here can provide insights into the situation for workers and migrants worldwide.


WOB, INC. is a 501c3 tax exempt organization (EIN 74-3003850) founded as a Texas-based non-profit corporation in the year 2000. Our educational materials are intended to raise public awareness over the impact of NAFTA in people’s lives whether in the U.S. or in the global economy.  We initiated this to support the efforts of courageous working women who take on the difficult task of filing grievances under existing labor law against multinational companies whose practices contribute to the oppression of women and children and create toxic work and living environments.
