Marshallese Women's Advocacy Program
The Marshallese Women's Advocacy Program 1) increases access to justice for Marshallese female survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking, and 2) promotes women's empowerment through wholistic health practices.
As a former-STOP VAWA and current VOCA grant recipient, we
conduct outreach to raise awareness of domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking
inform Marshallese community members about available public resources
provide culturally appropriate training to help advocacy agencies and officials better serve Marshallese clients
provide interpreter services to improve communication and ease the process for Marshallese survivors to come forward and seek assistance
To promote women's empowerment, we
incorporate Whole Health Institute techniques and practices
partner with Community Clinic on women's outreach activities
partner with UAMS on Healthy Start programming for young mothers
host women's support groups and workshops
MEI staff is actively seeking partner agencies to collaborate on programming!
