Courage Cards

Urgent Action Fund partners with some of the most courageous women and trans* activists around the world. Despite ongoing threats, harassment and violence, the individuals and organizations that we support remain steadfast in their commitment to realizing gender equality through non-violent activism.

The 12 activists featured below embody that spirit of courage through their work to protect and advance the rights of women, girls and trans* people in their communities. Their leadership, determination and resilience push all of us forward in our combined efforts towards justice, equality and peace.
