Mission Statement



Welcome to PAWA



The Palestinian America Women Association for Southern California (PAWA) is a not for profit, community-based organization working to enable Arab American Women to be productive, contributing members of society by promoting self-esteem, self-confidence, leadership development, personal and social growth for Arab American Women. PAWA works towards the emancipation and empowerment of Arab American women to enhance the quality of life and development of our community. Furthermore, we advocate for freedom, equality and justice.

PAWA addresses the social and economic needs of all of our communities, focusing especially on the needs of women and children. Our primary means to achieve these goals include implementing educational cultural programs, providing services, and fostering cooperation amongst community organizations. Moreover, we work to establish and enhance bonds with other organizations whose goals we share.
