Urgent Action Fund for Women’s Human Rights

Urgent Action Fund, as part of women’s rights movements worldwide, supports women’s rights defenders striving to create cultures of justice, equality and peace. They believe that the best way to support activists seeking to effect systemic change is to adopt a flexible, adaptive grantmaking approach that supports the creativity and vision of grassroots leaders and a diversity of tactics. From this framework, the organization provides Rapid Response Grants that enable strategic interventions, and participate in collaborative advocacy and research. The Fund is led by activists, rooted in feminism, and strengthened through solidarity.
