MADRE - Global women's rights 

Emergency: Your Action for Women and Families Trapped in War Zones

Women and children struggling to survive war need your immediate action! With your gift to MADRE today, we can send urgent aid, like food, medical care, shelter and more to women and families most in need in places like Syria and Iraq. 

MADRE partners with grassroots women on the frontlines of war and disaster. Together, we meet urgent needs and create lasting change.


We Partner for Social Change

MADRE partners with grassroots women's groups facing war, disaster and their aftermath. Together, we meet urgent needs and build women's capacity to create positive social change.

We Advocate for Human Rights

MADRE applies the tools of human rights advocacy to create social change with our partners. We make international law accountable to the people it's meant to serve.

As our rights, our communities and our climate face growing threats, Indigenous grassroots women are leading the way to vital solutions. And it has never been more urgent to listen to their solutions and propel their policy demands forward. Here are some upcoming opportunities to join MADRE and our partners and to learn about this work.

In one of the Trump administration’s latest assaults on women, the State Department cut all US funding to the UNFPA, a United Nations agency that provides a wide range of lifesaving maternal and reproductive health care worldwide.

Join us to honor Myrna Cunningham, a longtime MADRE partner, Indigenous activist and powerful advocate for human rights.


With you and with MADRE, our grassroots partners protect and provide for the most vulnerable. They build new skills and grow as community leaders. And they bring their demands to policymakers and advocate for rights, resources and results.
