Our story

 

Stand with migrant worker women by joining our campaign Unstoppable Mujeres (#UnstoppableMujeres)! We’re raising $20,000 in support for Proyecto de Mujeres Migrantes (ProMuMi)—a CDM project that responds to the particular challenges that migrant women face through leadership development and cross-border advocacy. Help us raise $10,000 by the end of #GivingTuesday!

 

WHY IT MATTERS

Each year, hundreds of thousands of women travel to the United States to provide essential caregiving support to families across the country, pick our produce, and even keep U.S. cruise ships afloat. They work seasonally in U.S. factories, on farms, in hotels, and in private homes. These migrant women—who hail from communities across Mexico, and from other locales throughout the Global South—work long months abroad to provide for their families back home.

Too often, they confront severe forms of discrimination and human rights violations, which begin in the recruitment process in their home communities and continue in the workplace. Migrant women are often channeled into lower-paying jobs and are cut off from more coveted jobs reserved for men. They are survivors of sexual harassment, pay discrimination, untreated work injuries, and human trafficking. They often work in industries that isolate them from social services and other workers. And although U.S. anti-discrimination, wage, and health and safety laws should protect them, those laws are often not enforced.

 

ABOUT THE PROJECT

Through our binational Migrant Women’s Project (Proyecto de Mujeres Migrantes, or ProMuMi), Centro de los Derechos del Migrante, Inc. (CDM) stands with migrant women in demanding equal pay, dignified work, and stronger worker protections. For years, CDM has facilitated workshops with migrant women about their rights in recruitment and employment, cultivated leadership skills, and fostered critical opportunities for migrant women to intervene in policy debates. Migrant women leaders participating in these initiatives have drawn policymakers’ attention to serious flaws in the international labor recruitment process and U.S. guestworker programs. Government agencies and lawmakers have responded, citing CDM and women leaders’ work and vision in implementing important policy reforms.
