we work on

We live in a world beset by climate crisis, poverty, oppression and violence. Our partners are paving the way forward with light and hope.

Our movement partners are engaged in dynamic — and often intersecting — issues and struggles.

Another world is not only possible, it’s already being created. Grassroots feminists are organizing to address gender-based violence in its multiple forms. Indigenous Peoples are standing up for their waterways and their rights. Peasants are challenging corporate agriculture while feeding and protecting the planet.

While all of this work intersects and overlaps, we’ve distilled the following issue areas to provide a sense of the diverse ways in which our partners are working to tackle the roots of injustice.


Human Rights Defense

Whether it’s unjust imprisonment or outright kidnappings and assassinations, social movement activists are targets of human rights violations around the world. We support movements to strengthen collective security; monitor and document violations; campaign against impunity; take legal actions; and push for the recognition of new forms of human rights.

Grassroots Feminisms

An array of feminist movements are insisting women, trans, and gender non-conforming people’s rights cannot be isolated from other inequalities like race, class, and colonialism. And they are building vibrant alternatives to sustain life and win liberation, proving that those most targeted by patriarchal policies must be the ones who outline their replacements.

Defense of Territory

Struggles for territory get to fundamental issues of self-determination and survival in the face of older and newer forms of extractivism, from settler colonialism to global land and water grabbing. Social movements are increasingly broadening discussions on land to more holistic conceptions of territory that include diverse aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems, and the lives and cultures connected to them.
