NAPAWF is the only organization focused on building power with AAPI women and girls to influence critical decisions that affect our lives, our families and our communities. Using a reproductive justice framework, we elevate AAPI women and girls to impact policy and drive systemic change in the United States.

NAPAWF was founded in 1996 to realize the vision of 100 AAPI women who recognized the need for an organization that would amplify AAPI women's stories and experiences. Being seen and heard in the public narrative gives us the power to shape the policy and cultural change needed to gain agency over our lives, families, and communities.

Today, we are mobilizing and building power in 11 cities across the United States to create social, political, and economic change for AAPI women and girls. 3 of those cities have local staff on the ground. We also show up in solidarity for other women of color who are experiencing injustice and harms of oppression and marginalization.

Our work is focused in the following strategies:

  • Policy and Structural Change
  • Organizing and Civic Engagement
  • Legal Advocacy and Judicial Strategy

We use the Reproductive Justice lens to intersectionally address three core issues:

  • Reproductive Rights and Health
  • Economic Justice
  • Immigration and Racial Justice

POSITION OVERVIEW

NAPAWF is one of the only groups reaching out to voters who are historically ignored, including immigrants and non English speakers, to get out the vote in AAPI communities across the nation.
