The Asian Australian Alliance Women’s Forum (AAAWF) is a self-led feminist activist group introduced to continue a movement of change that was initiated by our feminist sisters in the past. The Asian Australian Alliance Women’s Forum (AAAWF) launched on 14th June 2014.
To advocate for social justice and fight against inequality of all kinds that is affecting our women and young girls with the Asian Australian communities, and to advocate on the relevant issues with our broader community stakeholders.
To translate our vision into action by identifying common issues and concerns such as gender-based violence, workplace exploitation, forced marriage, human trafficking and slavery like practices.
On a broader scale, we aim to work with grassroots, national and international stakeholders to develop tools and frameworks prepared by academic and practice-based strategists to deliver changes on the ground. We have a semi-structured and collective working approach where we consult and engage the community before, during and after working on the projects. For the sustainable futures of this forum, all Conveners provide the platform and encourage our stakeholders to be creative with working strategies and provide accompaniments in our journey of the movement of change. Overall, we are always keen and available to work with the broader multicultural Australian communities to organise, strengthen and grow.
