Project Hajra is a membership based, peer supported, and transformative justice initiative working out of our local AMEMSA (Arab, Middle Eastern, Muslim, and South/Central Asian) community in Queens, NYC. We began in 2011 in partnership with CONNECT-NYC to develop gender justice organizing programs by and for us. We know that immigrant women of color have been doing creative organizing work to end violence without recognition. We work to build on their movements to deepen transformative justice models in our community. Project Hajra sees the root cause of gender justice as power; connected to state and other regime violence. Addressing and eradicating gender justice in our communities means addressing other forms of oppression.
