Our campaigns cut across our Strategies and Programs and allow us to respond to emerging crises and opportunities, build collaboration among allies and create change on a complex issue.
- Our targeted grants support select US organizations protecting communities under threat and provide activists with trainings about their international human rights.
- Our international legal petition to the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights is challenging abuses of women and LGBTIQ people in US immigration detention centers.
- We are holding strategic convenings among US and international activists to deepen our transnational feminist solidarity network.
It’s hard to keep up with the cacophony of bigoted expletives and outrages emanating from the White House. So you may have missed the Administration’s latest desperate attempt to justify its xenophobic and racist immigration policies, this time by pretending to care about women’s rights.
Yifat Susskind, MADRE Executive Director, appeared on 112BK with Ashley Ford to address global women's rights, the rise of the right and how progressive activists can learn from each other to build stronger movements.
What is the feminist future we're struggling towards — and what does it look like when we win?
Together, we must confront the crisis of right-wing populism and authoritarianism — and forge solutions. That's why we convened a strategic exchange among women's rights advocates: to offer ideas and strategies to navigate the backlash and to advance our rights.
- We will explore ways for MADRE and US-based partners to use international and regional human rights mechanisms to increase pressure on the US as it tightens restrictions on immigrants and refugees and increases deportations and detention.
- We will expand our work in philanthropic advocacy, by initiating briefings for funders on supporting work to combat authoritarian nationalism, xenophobia, homophobia and religious fundamentalism, both domestically and internationally, from an intersectional feminist perspective.
