Everyday, women take action to make their communities more equitable, more just, and more resilient. Urgent Action Fund exists for these activists.
We think they are the most courageous women we know.
They speak out against sexual violence in Nepal, stand up for peace in Gaza, and march to end police brutality against Black women and transgender people in the United States. They are leaders in their communities, working to ensure that women and girls are able to live free from violence and discrimination. We invite you to read their powerful stories in this annual report.
Urgent Action Fund is there for activists when they come under fire. In 2014, we awarded 123 rapid response grants to improve the safety of activists facing threats, or during moments of great opportunity to set new pathways for equality. As a result, activists have persevered, communities are stronger, and we are a step closer to realizing a more just world.
Thank you for being a part of our community, and for standing with women and transgender activists on the frontlines of justice and equality. Their strength and leadership creates more resilient communities for us all
