Urgent Action Fund is launching a second round of our Feminist Innovation Fund 2.0 to amplify the transformative work of women, trans, and gender diverse activists working at the intersection of gender justice, environmental and climate justice (ECJ) & collective care.
In line with our deep commitment to centering the leadership of intersectional feminist activists and recognizing the disproportionate impact the current climate crisis has on women and gender-diverse people, this Feminist Innovation Fund 2.0 seeks to support grassroots movements led by women, trans, and gender-diverse people from underrepresented communities in implementing innovative, holistic, and collective care practices and tactics into their activism and organizing to support activists and organizers build ongoing resiliency in the increasingly challenging climate justice fights.
This fund is a special grantmaking initiative separate from our core rapid response funding and has been designed to meet the growing needs of frontline defenders by strengthening and growing their capacity to incorporate collective care practices and opportunities into their activism/organizing that feeds into broader movement resiliency.
The strategies and actions utilized will be determined by frontline defenders. However, the following are examples of possible actions that this funding can support:
