MADRE - Global women's rights 

You Can Reach Women in Danger!

US airstrikes fall in Iraq, killing innocent civilians. US missiles rain down in Syria, worsening an already agonizing war. The US drops the horribly-named “Mother of All Bombs” in Afghanistan. And this is just in the first few months of the Trump administration. 

It’s easy to feel helpless in the face of so much death and devastation. But through MADRE, you have a clear, effective way to respond.

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.

The multiplicity of harms can feel overwhelming. But with thoughtful coordination we can support each other to resist the Trump administration's agenda and its global impacts.

The first 100 days of the Trump administration has been a period marked by chaos and continued assaults on our rights and freedoms, in the US and around the world. But at the same time, there’s been hope. In the coming days, we’ll be sharing resources on the threats we face, the policies we demand, and how we can resist together.
