Wellbeing.

We promote holistic care within our institution and in activist spaces. We understand that self-care is an important political tool in our ability to fight for justice. For us, the practice of wellbeing, both individually and collectively, is a central tenet to sustaining feminist movements.

Integrity.

At Urgent Action Fund for Feminist Activism, we value integrity, which includes the practices of transparency, honesty, reliability, and accountability—especially in challenging moments. We think critically and actively listen to grantees, donors, advisors, partners, and movement allies with whom we build relationships based on mutual respect and trust.

Mindful-engagement.

Conscious of the exploitative history and present reality of resource accumulation, Urgent Action Fund for Feminist Activism funds frontline feminist activists and connects them with resources in ways that upend, rather than reinforce, traditional power dynamics and shift power towards marginalized voices. We trust the leadership of local activists and their lived experience.

🎉 Happy New Year 🎉

Looking forward to the year ahead, we know that frontline feminist activists must be more prepared than ever to mobilize and meet unexpected opportunities and challenges, navigating ever-shifting political landscapes with safety, urgency, creativity and care.

This is why at Urgent Action Fund for Feminist Activism we continue to provide fast, flexible support to women and LGBTQI+ activists so they can respond to unexpected risks and opportunities, protect and care for themselves and one another, and nurture feminist movements that are creating a more just and equitable world.

Disability does not come from a diagnosis, but from the limitations and barriers imposed by the capitalist and ableist system where only one type of body is considered "functional".

In this video by our sisters at Fondo Acción Urgente - LAC, Andrea, Eli, Heylin and Mariana tell you their feelings and experiences as proudly disabled women.

In 2023, we stood shoulder to shoulder with extraordinary feminist activists in moments of crisis and supported opportunities for change.

We awarded 502 rapid response grants this year, totalling $3.7 million, our highest number of grants to date. These grants provided resources to feminist activists and movements in the Middle East, Europe, the Caucasus, the Balkans, Central Asia, the United States, and Canada.

With a grant from Urgent Action Fund, feminist activists are able to fight for a more just world, push the boundaries for meaningful change, and make a real difference in their communities.

As we reflect on the impacts of our collective efforts, we invite you to join us in celebrating the resilience and achievements of activists worldwide. Here’s to feminist activists across the globe!

*** Trigger Warning***

One year later, Ukraine is still in the midst of a war with Russia. Communities are devastated by destruction and violence. Since the Russian invasion, r**e cases have increased dramatically across the country, mainly by Russian soldiers.

Urgent Action Fund supports organizations and activists in Ukraine working with victims of sexual abuse by providing funding for psychological support, relocation, rest to alleviate burnout, and much more. https://secure.givelively.org/donate/urgent-action-fund-for-women-s-human-rights/urgent-response-fund-ukraine?utm_campaign=meetedgar&utm_medium=social&utm_source=meetedgar.com

We're pleased to share exciting news from one of our grantees in Turkey. Mersin Pride Week has been banned for six years.

Yet our grantee has continued to organize Pride Week as a form of resistance and has objected to the ban by seeking legal action. With support from Urgent Action Fund for Feminist Activism, our grantee recently won their case and proved that Mersin Pride Week was illegally banned.

Justice.

At Urgent Action Fund for Feminist Activism, we work towards a world in which all human rights, including women and LGBTQI+ people’s rights, are upheld and regarded as equal. We are committed to removing systemic barriers that frontline feminist activists face in their fight for justice. We apply a feminist, human rights and social justice lens to all aspects of our work by focusing on structurally marginalized groups and critically analyzing unequal power structures and how they operate.

Activist burnout is real. That's why at Urgent Action Fund we provide resources to activists to focus on collective care, helping to sustain and grow movements while allowing activists the time and space to recharge.

The climate movement feels entitled to Black women’s time and energy, leading to a unique kind of burnout.

At Urgent Action Fund for Feminist Activism we partner with frontline feminist movements to support women and LGBTQI+ activists striving to create a more just and equitable world.

We do this through a deep commitment to our values of justice, integrity, feminisms, courage, mindful-engagement, and wellbeing.

When we center frontline feminists, activists, and movements across global philanthropic and advocacy spaces, especially those most marginalized by oppressive systems and structures, we can shift greater power, resources and protection toward frontline feminist movements to realize and sustain their vision for a just and equitable world.

Recent anti-trans legislation focuses on limiting the rights of trans youth. In Kentucky, lawmakers passed a ban on gender-affirming care for trans youth. At Urgent Action Fund, we support trans youth as US politicians attempt to roll back their rights.

Republican lawmakers in Kentucky have passed a bill that prohibits transgender minors from receiving gender-affirming care, allows educators to refuse to refer to transgender students by their preferred pronouns and would not allow schools to discuss sexual orientation or gender identity with studen...

Urgent Action Fund for Women’s Human Rights is a feminist fund that protects, strengthens and sustains women and transgender human rights defenders at critical moments.

We intervene quickly when activists are poised to make great gains or face serious threats to their lives and work. We use online, text and mobile funding applications to respond to requests from women’s human rights defenders within 72 hours and have funds on the ground within 1-7 days.

Urgent Action Fund builds the resilience of women’s rights and LGBT rights movements in three ways:


  • Rapid Response Grantmaking: We award rapid response grants to women and transgender human rights defenders in Asia, the Middle East, Central and Eastern Europe, and North America. Activists apply for grants of up to $8,000 USD in any language on any day of the year and are guaranteed a response within 72 hours.
