CDM is running for migrant women's rights! CDM staff and allies will participate in races in Mexico City and Baltimore this fall 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.
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 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.
DONATE today to support women leaders and to promote migrant women's rights.
