Urgent Action Fund for Women’s Human Rights
Urgent Action Fund for Women’s Human Rights is a global women’s fund that protects, strengthens and sustains women and transgender human rights defenders at critical moments. We intervene quickly when activists are poised to make great gains or face serious threats to their lives and work. We use online, text and mobile funding applications to respond to requests from women’s human rights defenders within 24 hours and have funds on the ground within 1-7 days.
Urgent Action Fund builds the resilience of women’s rights and LGBT rights movements in three ways: Rapid Response Grantmaking; Advocacy & Alliance-Building; and Research & Publications. Urgent Action Fund is part of a global consortium of Urgent Action Funds that also includes Urgent Action Fund-Latin America and Urgent Action Fund-Africa. Collectively, the global consortium of Urgent Action Funds supports women’s rights and LGBT rights movements in more than 110 countries worldwide.
