AAA members and applied anthropologists Jane Henrici and Patricia Foxen will be participating in a report release forum held at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars on Friday, March 25 at 1:30pm. This forum focuses on issues facing both Latina immigrants and the organizations that work to help them. Jane Henrici, Study Director at the Institute for Women’s Policy Research, is co-author of the report, Organizations Working with Latina Immigrants: Resources and Strategies for Change, to be released at the event; the report is based on a two-year research project that explores how nonprofit organizations and religious congregations seek to advance the rights and well-being of Latina immigrants in Atlanta, Phoenix, and Northern Virginia. Patricia Foxen, Associate Director of Research, National Council of La Raza, is chairing two sessions of presentations from researchers, organizational leaders, and advocates working closely with immigrant women and their families.
