COVID-19 Response
An important note to our Milwaukee community
Our physical office locations have closed in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. However, HAWA's advocacy services still remain available.

We are PROUD to be the only Southeast Asian women, Queer-fem-led grassroots social justice advocacy organization in Milwaukee, WI that is dedicated to the liberation of Southeast Asian women, girls, Queer and Trans people.

DONATE TO HAWA ROOTS DOWN CAMPAIGN

“The goal of our HAWA ROOTS DOWN Campaign is to raise funds that will continue to support our work here in Milwaukee…”

Lastly, I want to dedicate this new home to all Southeast Asian Women, Girls, Queer and Trans people, especially those of you who continue to survive and thrive. To you all I say, Welcome Home!

Executive Director

Building Our Future Campaign

HAWA works to bring attention to the issue of Abusive International Marriages (AIM) that we see is a form of domestic and sexual violence. AIM is a term that was coined by WI Domestic Violence advocates who was noticing the practice of older Hmong men going to Southeast Asia to marry and exploit much younger Hmong girls. You can find the full report of AIM here.
