What Women Want: A Blog Carnival for Immigration Reform

by Katie Stanton
YWCA USA Social Media Manager

On June 6, 2013, activists and allies will collectively advocate for the passage of comprehensive, common-sense reform with a focus on women, girls and immigrant communities as part of “What Women Want: A National Day of Action for Immigration Reform.”

We’re getting ready for this Day of Action with our What Women Want blog carnival, focusing on this question:

What do immigrant women need the most from comprehensive reform?

Right now, the Senate Judiciary Committee is in the middle of the markup process for the Border Security, Economic Opportunity and Immigration Modernization Act, S. 744. We want to hear from you about what your priorities are for immigration reform, and why reform matters for women and families. What are the biggest challenges for women? How will immigration reform affect your family? We also encourage you to write about the programs and initiatives you are taking part in to make comprehensive reform a reality!

The YWCA USA will collect the blog posts and publish them throughout the day on Thursday, May 30. We will also be sharing posts on Twitter with the hashtag #women4CIR . You are welcome to publish your post and any other posts from the carnival on your own website or blog.  (Don’t know what a blog carnival is? Click here.)

Please email your submission to kstanton@ywca.org by Tuesday, May 28, at 5 pm.

Your submission should include the following:

  • The blog post author’s name, title, and a 50-word bio
  • The link to the blog post OR the blog post in a Word document
  • Any photos or video links that you would like to include
  • Your Twitter handle or your organization’s Twitter handle (if you have one)
  • You are welcome to publish your piece on your own blog or website – please include the following language at the bottom of your post.
