Dwa Fanm ("Women's Rights" in Creole) is a human rights organization committed to empowering all women and girls with the freedom to define and control their own lives. Through service, education, advocacy and grassroots programs, Dwa Fanm works to end discrimination, violence, and other forms of injustice in the United States and abroad.
Dwa Fanm works within a human rights model that seeks dignity and justice for every human being. We see the rights of women and girls as integral to the human rights of our communities. Violations of women's dignity and autonomy·whether perpetrated by police or other public servants, employers, or members of our own families and communities·undermine the human rights of the entire community. We are all responsible for standing up to human rights abuses.
