The Trump Administration and right-wing governments around the world are targeting the rights of women, LGBTIQ people, Muslims, refugees and migrants, people of color and Indigenous Peoples. Communities that have long faced discrimination and violence are even more under threat.
As activists, we need to create and strengthen ways for us to work together in the face of this crisis. That’s why MADRE – along with our allies at the Black Alliance for Just Immigration (BAJI), Just Associates (JASS), the Urgent Action Fund (UAF) and the Association for Women’s Rights in Development (AWID) – held a special convening to connect US and global social justice activists.
Together, we shared the threats we face, put our heads together to devise more effective ways to resist, and asserted our shared principles to build a truly secure and just world.
