Gender, Racial, and Ethnic Justice

Despite significant progress, structural inequality based on gender, race, class, disability, and ethnicity persists around the world and is compounded and complicated by today’s challenges. Violence against women and girls—rooted in patriarchy and laws, policies, and cultural norms aimed at curtailing rights—inflicts deep, lasting physical, psychological, and economic damage. People of color are disproportionately policed and incarcerated. Immigrants and LGBTQ+ people are targeted simply because of who they are.

But today’s realities have helped fuel vibrant new leaders and movements engaging in innovative advocacy and forging powerful alliances. In the Global South, there are efforts underway to reframe narratives to represent the experiences of women and girls around the world. In the United States, young people are leading new movements for immigrant rights and for racial justice that are challenging xenophobia, standing up for black lives, and interrogating the equation of police and prisons with public safety. Our work is to support the courageous people and organizations at the center of this fight to achieve lasting political and social change.”

We recognize that race, gender, class, disability, and ethnic identity are deeply connected—often inextricably so—and make sure our efforts are rooted in this understanding. It’s an understanding that informs our commitment to shifting repressive power dynamics and strengthening the rights and influence of those most affected by violence, oppression and injustice across the globe.
