EMPOWER BAB – over £1K raised for Baobab Women’s Project!

We are thrilled to announce that our EMPOWER BAB shop raised a fantastic £1422 which will all go directly to supporting the vital work of Baobab Women’s Project.

The EMPOWER BAB shop sold small, original, affordable artworks – made and donated by over 50 people responding to the word ’empower’ – and our limited edition EMPOWER BAB brooch.

We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who donated artwork, to everyone who made a purchase from our shop and to our team at FWFC who worked really hard on this fundraiser. You are all wonderful ❤️

Baobab Women’s Project are a West Midlands refugee and asylum seeker women’s advocacy project, working in solidarity with others for positive change. They focus on undocumented, asylum seeking and newly granted refugee women’s issues, particularly supporting women affected by gender violence and trafficking.

No Victim Left Behind – Sign the Petition

The current Domestic Abuse Bill does not do enough to protect migrant women or children who have been affected by domestic violence and abuse.

We need a Domestic Abuse Bill that protects everyone. Jess Phillips MP is urging Parliament to listen and vote to ensure there is protection and support for migrant women who face domestic abuse, and that children who suffer are not forgotten.

Watch and share these films showing how the current bill affects migrant, refugee and asylum seeking women, and children affected by domestic violence and abuse.

Please Sign the petition and share.
