Presently Mufalo is helping to organize a conference on the 21st of May at USM called Empower the Immigrant Woman. The Conference will kick off with a morning job/business empowerment forum focusing on helping empower immigrant women build English language job-readiness and entrepreneurship skills and learn about available services and resources while networking with employers and businesses. It will close an evening gala honoring several Remarkable Trailblazer Women from immigrant communities in Maine whose incredible and inspirational stories will leave every attendee Empowered, Educated and Inspired!
A number of agencies and organizations support immigrants but there is no existing group dedicated to helping immigrant women in the state. Mufalo has used a collaborative strategy to create a way for women to get to know and help one another as they find their way in Maine.
