A MESSAGE FROM OUR FOUNDER
ALIZABETH NEWMAN

RECIPIENT OF SEPA MUJER’S 2016 LEGACY ACHIEVEMENT AWARD

 

SEPA Mujer has been working to support immigrant women on Long Island since 1993, bringing together community members and advocates to speak out against injustice, provide access to opportunities and services, take a stand against domestic violence and other abuses, and push for social change.

We work with individuals and in partnerships with organizations (immigrant rights, civil rights, and domestic violence based). 

OUR MISSION  

SEPA Mujer stands for the well-being and success of Latina immigrant women on Long Island. Our objective is to raise and unite our voices to be heard by the social and political systems in our communities. Through our work, we strive to nurture and improve civic engagement by way of leadership skills and legal representation.

 

At SEPA Mujer we aim to highlight the value of Latina immigrant women in our community and to develop and celebrate our role on Long Island. Through our programs we have come to know the reality of the discrimination and fear which immigrant women on Long Island so often face but together we will overcome these challenges.
