Mexico Trip 2018
Join us in Mexico City & Oaxaca—April 2018!
At this moment of transition, women’s movements around the world are poised to ensure that women’s voices are heard and that human rights are not rolled back. Women fighting for rights in Mexico tell us and show us that they will continue to advocate and work on key issues like reproductive rights, ending sexual violence, creating economic opportunities, defending natural resources, indigenous women’s rights, and girls’ rights. They are determined to grow and flourish, to make connections, and to work together across borders.
We hope you can join us on this unique trip, April 7-14, 2018, where we will gain inspiration and insight from an array of amazing women leaders fighting to ensure equality, sustainability, and justice in their communities and around the world. Register here to secure your spot!
Alongside our long-standing grantee partner Semillas, The Mexican Women’s Fund, we are curating a carefully selected array of local grantee partner site visits, including:
LuchadorasTV (Mexico City)
Global Fund for Women Grantee (first-time grantee in 2016) and Semillas Grantee
Established in 2011 in Mexico City and led by young women, LuchadorasTV is fighting to change male-dominated media content through training young women on new technologies for their ownership of online content and media to tell stories from the point of view of women, with a feminist and human rights framework.
Consorcio para el diálogo parlamentario y la equidad Oaxaca, A.C.
Global Fund for Women Grantee since 2010 and member of the Women Land Defenders Cohort and an anchor organization in the Mesoamerican region.
Consorcio works to reform local policies, institutions, and decision-making processes in public spaces of power by strengthening women’s organizations’ political and strategic capacities and by building bridges and alliances between the feminist movement and the legislative system in Mexico. Since its creation, Consorcio has focused on improving parliamentary debate and knowledge of gender equality and women’s issues, particularly of indigenous women.
