What Women Want: A Blog Carnival for Immigration Reform

On June 6, 2013, we’re convening YWCA local associations, immigration reform activists and our national partners to call on Capitol Hill for the passage of comprehensive, common-sense reform with a focus on women, girls and immigrant communities. We’re calling it: “What Women Want: A National Day of Action for Immigration Reform.”

To get ready, read our What Women Want blog carnival, which focused on this question:

What do immigrant women need the most from comprehensive reform?
