Today is #UNDay – and 2020 marks the 75th Anniversary of the United Nations and its founding Charter! Throughout history and into the present moment, women, LGBTQI, and gender non-conforming human rights defenders worldwide are challenging existing power structures, taking a stand against patriarchy and misogyny, and reimagining a more just and equitable future.
#Advocacy requires us to interrogate structures of power, strategize to overcome constraints and seize opportunities to drive change.
For UAF, advocacy is about using power and influence in a strategic way. We believe this is a moment to call for bold, systemic change—because the movements we support and the more just world we collectively envision demand nothing less.
Collective power and advocacy are the mechanisms we have to uproot traditional power structures that exclude us!
