Black History Month 2023: Celebrating #EverydayFeminists in Philanthropy
Join Global Fund for Women this Black History Month as we highlight brilliant Black women leaders who are disrupting philanthropy and development, moving money, and getting results. We’re sharing Black history around the world that features the people and organizations who center Black freedom, Black joy, and Black dignity every day.
Global Fund for Women has partnered with these leaders to share their stories and advice on how to act boldly as #EverydayFeminists. Our movements are stronger, healthier, and better resourced because of these leaders working for change.
Lori Robinson is the founder and executive director of VidaAfrolatina, the emerging international women’s fund that mobilizes resources and connects them with Black and Afro-descendant women-led organizations in Latin America that address sexual violence. A bilingual African American, she worked as a journalist for 25 years and is the author of I Will Survive: The African-American Guide to Healing from Sexual Assault and Abuse.
Cleo Kambugu is a Ugandan human rights activist leading the fight for equality for sexual and gender minorities, including trans, intersex, and gender non-conforming communities. She works as the Director of Programmes for the East African Sexual Health and Rights Initiative (UHAI EASHRI).
With 17 years of experience as a movement infrastructure architect, Dani Ayers is the first CEO of metoo. International. Global Fund for Women partners with the ‘me too.’ global movement to support a well-resourced ecosystem around the world that works to end sexual- and gender-based violence, and make healing and actionable support systems available to survivors.
