Открыты заявки на участие в программе грантов UAF Beijing +25 Advocacy Grants

 

The Urgent Action Fund for Women’s Human Rights is seeking applications for its Beijing +25 Advocacy Grants Program to amplify the voices of women, trans, and gender diverse communities engaging with the Beijing +25/Generation Equality Forum (GEF) process to review and follow-up on the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action on its 25th anniversary.

The grants will be for women and gender diverse activists to global advocacy spaces to engage with Beijing +25 processes and/or push for commitments from governments or other stakeholders as part of the GEF framing.

Urgent Action Fund for Women’s Human Rights partners with intersectional feminist movements worldwide striving to create cultures of justice and peace. They protect, strengthen, and sustain women, trans, gender non-conforming, non-binary, and other gender-diverse human rights defenders and movements through rapid response grantmaking, advocacy and alliance building, and convenings and knowledge building.

UAF’s Beijing +25 Grant Program aims to support activists who are typically under-represented in global advocacy spaces and who work at the intersection of various social movements. Women/trans/gender diverse people must be the primary decision-makers in the organization, group, or action.

Grant Period

        Grant activities can take place before, during, in between, and/or after official Forum meetings and can focus on local, national, sub-regional, regional, and/or global levels but all grant activities must be completed by 31 December 2021.

Program Activities

 

Funding for UAF’s Beijing +25 grant applications will be given for advocacy activities like the following:

        Raising awareness about the Beijing +25/GEF process and its relevance for marginalized communities

        Organizing and mobilizing marginalized communities to formulate collective demands and strategize

        Participating in shaping and planning the Forum meetings and agendas

        Connecting marginalized groups with Beijing +25/GEF processes and sharing information so they can engage with the process in a meaningful way

        And much more!

Eligibility Criteria

        This grant will prioritize both thematic and regional areas that have been left out of these processes, including but not limited to:

        activists who are radicalized, indigenous, and from other marginalized ethnic and religious groups

        environmental and land rights defenders

        disability rights defenders

        lesbian, bisexual, trans, queer, intersex, gender non-conforming, non-binary, and other gender-diverse defenders

        sex worker and informal, domestic, and low-wage worker rights defenders

        migrant, displaced refugee, or stateless defenders and those affected by conflict and occupation, and other under-represented groups, etc.

        Rather than activists who regularly participate in international UN advocacy, UAF’s Beijing +25 Grant will fund activists with limited experiences with UN global advocacy spaces and some activists who are new to those spaces but find them strategic. UAF will prioritize funding for organizations with an operating budget of less than $1 million and groups with limited access to resources and donor support.

        UAF will accept applications and provide support to women and trans human rights defenders/activists or organizations led by women or trans activists from the regions/countries below:

        Canada

        Central Asia

        Eastern Europe

        Middle East

        Russia

        South Caucasus

        Turkey

        United States

        Western Europe
