Ariadne, EDGE, Gender Funders CoLab, HRFN, and Prospera – International Network of Women’s Funds invite you to a virtual briefing from VOICE Amplified on their latest report, When the Sky Closes: The Unprecedented Crisis Facing Women and Girls Fleeing Ukraine.
The report provides detailed accounts of the Russian invasion’s impact on women’s rights and gender justice in Ukraine and border countries (Poland, Hungary, Slovakia, Romania and Moldova).
In this session, we will speak directly with grassroots frontline responders and with the VOICE Amplified team to:
- Understand the day-to-day lived reality of organizing in the region today;
- Hear what forms of funding and funder solidarity have been most effective and what is needed to support feminist, LGBTQ+, and gender justice activists in conflict;
- Discuss the current context and potential scenarios in the region for which local women’s rights, feminist, and gender justice movements are preparing now;
- Explore how philanthropy can be in solidarity and action with intersectional feminist and gender justice movements, as well as local communities and people on margins affected by the ongoing war in Ukraine.
This session is open to hosting networks’ members and close partners. It is intended to provide direct contact with frontline responders and as a space for coordination among funders.
