Refugee Women of Bristol is a registered charity originally set up in 2003 by a group of refugee women. They identified a number of common challenges in settling in to their new life in the UK regardless of where they came from. Refugee Women of Bristol has grown to be the only multi-ethnic, multi-faith organisation which specifically targets the needs of refugee women and is directly governed by women of the refugee and asylum seeking community in Bristol.

In the current climate of austerity with two women dying a week from violent ex/partners & refuges being shut down left, right and centre it is time to take Sister's Uncut to Bristol!! Join us in solidarity to fight against the dangerous sexist and racist cuts effecting women and non-binary individuals everywhere!! This will be a safe space for all women (trans, intersex and cis), all those who experience oppression as women (including non-binary and gender non-conforming people) only. Please feel free to bring ideas for direct action in Bristol and what you feel needs attention. We look forward to seeing everyone & let’s make some noise in (The venue is wheelchair accessible but unfortunately the toilets are not so this will be a priority for our next meeting) Please do not hesitate to get in touch. Solidarity to all my Sisters!
