MADRE supports the intergenerational work for gender justice and advances leaders from every generation in campaigns to advance the rights of women and girls and LGBTQIA+ people of all genders.
Our solidarity-based relationships with grassroots partners all over the world allows MADRE to act nimbly when a crisis hits their communities. Whether it’s from the worsening climate catastrophe or the outbreak of conflict, we get support directly to those affected immediately. And we continue to support the leadership of local women, girls, and LGBTQIA+ people of all genders to meet their needs and advance their rights.
People all over the world are exploited for their land and labor because of their race or ethnicity. MADRE works with leaders in these marginalized communities to build grassroots movements to take power back into their hands and end their oppression.
MADRE works with local women and girl leaders to address root causes of conflict and advance rights through their participation in peace processes, and to oppose the rising authoritarianism that promotes and feeds on conflict.
“We want the conservation of our land. Because that is our home. Mother Earth is our home.”Lucy Mulenkei Executive Director, Indigenous Information Network
