Laal provides resources Bengali/ Bangladeshi womxn need to live healthy, engaged, joyful lives

Bengali womxn are essential to NYC’s fabric, yet, we have been rendered invisible socially and politically even though we are the backbone to this city and our families. By leading and organizing Bengali womxn, Laal hopes to build the largest Bengali voting bloc in NYC’s history.

Through our programs, Laal womxn are becoming activists themselves. From understanding and advocating for themselves alongside gender justice, land use and environmental justice, to reproductive and abortion justice.

We believe that through Laal, Bangladeshi womxn will step into their power to lead change from the inside of their homes to the larger parts of society.

Bangladeshi womxn are known to lead revolutions.
