NAPAWF is a membership-based organization with 11 local chapters across the country and offices in New York and Washington DC.   NAPAWF fosters engagement of Asian and Pacific Islander women and girls on issues impacting their lives by providing accurate and timely policy analysis on matters such as workplace equity, reproductive rights and immigrant rights.  It couples these resources with opportunities to engage in local and national advocacy efforts.  General support supports NAPAWF’s work to promote awareness of the needs of Asian and Pacific Islander women and girls in the United States and strengthen the ability of this growing community to inform policies related to reproductive health, immigration and economic security.  A project grant supports NAPAWF’s  partnership with the National Domestic Workers Alliance to document and expose the impact of immigration enforcement policies on women.
