A donation to Urgent Action Fund supports the safety and security of women, trans, and non-binary people acting now for a more just and equitable world. We support activists who are at risk, under threat, and under-represented, and we provide funds to help them to not only protect themselves and their communities, but also to stand up for their rights and challenge systems of oppression.
