Mission Statement

The Mission of the Somali American Women Action Center is to help women achieve and thrive.

Description

Somali American Women Action Center is a refugee women led organization tailored towards enriching the lives of Immigrants and refugee women in Minnesota. Minnesota is the home of many Immigrants women who experienced education and employment disparities, which force them to live below the poverty line and rely heavily on social assistance to support their families. Multiple barriers prevent them from furthering their education and securing living wage employments. Currently, low skill and low paying jobs are available. Therefore through a participatory approaches we provide these women the space and the programming that fits their path of achieving and thriving.
