Non-Profit Organizations Working to Help Marginalized Women
Marginalized women are those who face discrimination or disadvantage due to their race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, or other factors. They are often more likely to live in poverty, experience violence, and lack access to education and healthcare.
We encourage you to help uplift marginalized women by supporting non-profit organizations working to assist them or by engaging with the Every Woman is Worthy mission to change the lives of one woman at a time through what we call “intentional actions.” Visit our Mission page to learn how to get involved. It takes less than a minute!
A few services that non-profits organizations provide for marginalized women include:
- Education and job training. NPOs can help marginalized women get the education and training they need to get good jobs and support themselves and their families.
- Housing assistance. NPOs can help marginalized women find safe and affordable housing.
- Legal assistance. NPOs can help marginalized women with legal issues, such as immigration, housing, and domestic violence.
- Mental health and addiction services. NPOs can provide mental health and addiction services to marginalized women.
- Support groups. NPOs can provide support groups for marginalized women who are facing challenges, such as poverty, violence, and discrimination.
Non-profit organizations play an important role in helping marginalized women. They provide much-needed services and support, and they help to create a more just and equitable society for all women.
Here are some examples of non-profits that are actively working to help:
- The National Domestic Violence Hotline provides 24/7, confidential support to victims of domestic violence.
- The Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN) provides 24/7, confidential support to victims of sexual assault.
- The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) provides support and advocacy for people with mental illness and their families.
- The National Organization for Women (NOW) is a feminist organization that advocates for women’s rights.
- The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is a NPO that defends civil liberties and civil rights.
These are just a few examples and we look forward to sharing more in the future. If you are a marginalized woman, or if you know a woman who needs help, please contact one of these organizations or another non-profit in your area. You are not alone.
