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.
