Friday, September 13, 2013 roughly 200 women came to D.C. to march, blockade, protest and get arrested as a part of a mass demonstration on Capitol Hill. We Belong Together, an initiative of the National Asian Pacific American Women’s Forum (NAPAWF) and the National Domestic Workers Alliance (NDWA), organized the action. The protest featured various women’s groups that gathered, held hands in a circle and sat down on Independence Ave between Capitol Hill and House members’ offices. By the end of the day over 100 women were arrested as they called for a move on immigration legislation.[3]
