Background

2020 marks the 25th anniversary of the Beijing 1995 conference on Women and the adoption of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action. It is also a five year milestone for the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The sixty-fourth session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW64) is planned to take place at the United Nations Headquarters in New York in March 2020, serving as a global convening space for review and appraisal of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action implementation, and developments towards the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Two key parallel processes are being developed towards activities at CSW64/Beijing+25: one related to the official UN structures, and another, Generation Equality Forum , which will include two global gatherings for gender equality, convened by UN Women and co-chaired by France and Mexico, to be held in May (Mexico) and July (France) 2020.

FCAA Spring Funder Forum will offer a two-part discussion to help contextualize current threats to HIV, health and human rights, health and human rights, with one session focusing on FOSTA-SESTA legislation and the other looking at the rise of religious conservatism.

As ethno-nationalist and fascist movements grow, feeding off social polarization and economic inequality, strange bedfellows are increasingly working together to roll back human rights and social justice gains and attack minorities and marginalized groups.
