Camp Widgi Peer Leader Retreat 2015

In order to expand its outreach and make a broader impact, WISE has established partnerships & collaborations with many organizations, public and private institutions, and public and commercial leaders dedicated to the empowerment of immigrant women and girls.

WISE serves as a convener of immigrant women of color, and believes that their collective strength and wisdom are a necessary element in removing barriers and changing conditions that limit choices for ALL immigrant women and girls and their families.
