Astraea Lesbian Foundation for Justice
The Astraea Lesbian Foundation for Justice is a philanthropic organisation working exclusively to advance LGBTQI human rights around the globe. They support grantee partners in the US and internationally who challenge oppression and seed change. Astraea works for racial, economic, social and gender justice. In 2015, Aestrea commissioned APC services for a research activity and participation in the Media, Communication and Technology Lab strategy workshop.
Over 80 people engaged in wildly different kinds of feminist activism across the world gathered together in Malaysia in early October, 2017, to discuss what does it mean to build movements around feminist principles, women’s rights, sexuality and related issues in the digital age. Because there is a lot that we can do as feminist activists, in this edition GenderIT.org takes a peek at the Making a Feminist Internet meeting.
Making a Feminist Internet: Movement Building in a Digital Age will be taking place between 3 and 6 October in Port Dickson, Malaysia.
APC in collaboration with Mama Cash, CREA, FRIDA, Urgent Action Fund, Astraea and AWID is organising a four-day convening to discuss and reflect on how movement building in a digital age is expressed in different locations in the social justice landscape. Apply!
