China: Avoiding Exploitation

Go with You: Helping young Chinese women move away from village to city

As China’s economy expands, hundreds of millions of people have moved from rural villages to China’s coastal cities.

It’s the largest human migration in the world’s history.

Young rural women often fare the worst. They lack the education, economic skills, and legal protections that could help them avoid exploitation.

American Friends Immigrant Services History in Florida

The Central America Political Asylum Project (CAPAP) was established in 1984 as part of the AFSC's Florida Undocumented Workers Program and began when increasing numbers of refugees from El Salvador and Guatemala fled to the US seeking safe haven from the civil wars in their home countries. While some Salvadoran and Guatemalan refugees were able to legalize their status under the provisions IRCA, many more remained undocumented or in pending asylum proceedings.
