Share on Tumblr

Happy Tenth Anniversary year, Urgent Action Fund!

The Urgent Action Fund supports women’s movements across the world by offering both urgent funding (allowing small groups to take advantage of immediate political and social opportunities) and documentation (allowing the work of these organizations to be documented and shared with other groups). More importantly, its board members reflect its vision: that of a global feminist communities comprised of passionate activists concerned about the experiences of women survivors of conflict and empowering local organizations with a history of working on these same issues.

Its sister organizations include UAF-Africa and UAF-Latin America.

“The unfortunate reality is that when aid is provided, women’s needs and the issues that women are uniquely confronted with are often not acknowledged.” — Mobina Jaffer
