THE STORY:

CDM is running for migrant women's rights! CDM staff and allies will participate in races in Baltimore (10/12/13) and Mexico City (12/15/13) to raise money for CDM's Migrant Women's Project (Proyecto de Mujeres Migrantes, or ProMuMi). Your generous contribution will support CDM and migrant women leaders to end workplace and recruitment abuse.

Women leaders like Elisa, a former worker in Maryland's crab industry and a member of the Migrant Defense Committee (Comité de Defensa del Migrante), embody the goals of the Migrant Women's Project. Elisa first went to work with an H-2B visa in Maryland's crab industry in 2000. Like many migrant women, Elisa faced discrimination; her boss gave men safer working conditions and higher pay. For years she worked under these conditions to support her family. Today, she is organizing against discrimination and recruitment abuse in her community and promoting migrant women’s rights internationally.

From recruitment in Mexico to workplaces in the United States, women migrants face discrimination. Labor recruiters hire women to fill jobs at the bottom of the labor market and at lower rates of pay than men. Women are also pushed into jobs where they are isolated from medical, social, and legal services. Too often they face sexual harassment, rape, and assault on the job.

Many remain silent, fearing that their employer or recruiter will retaliate. That threat is serious: women have lost their jobs and their immigration status for speaking out. With CDM's support, women like Elisa are standing up for their rights and fighting to end discrimination. CDM's Migrant Women's Project gives migrant women leaders the information, tools, and training they need to defend their rights.

As a leader in CDM's Migrant Women's Project and the Migrant Defense Committee, Elisa has participated in numerous know-your-rights and women's rights workshops as well as migrant leadership strategy sessions organized by CDM.  She has testified about her experiences before members of the press and congressional staff. Most importantly, Elisa has fully assumed her role as an agent for change. Trained as a migrant rights promoter, she now organizes and gives know-your-rights workshops in her community. She is a trailblazer and a tireless advocate for migrant women's rights.

DONATE today to support women leaders like Elisa and to promote migrant women's rights.
