Intersectional Feminist Club

A Peacemaking Project by Sofia A.

What is the injustice we are solving?

Beginning a feminist club in my community college will bring awareness to the issue of gender equality, but I also hope to cover a wider range of issues through this project such as lbgtq rights. I live in a community where there is not much diversity, it's a border town to Mexico where everyone is mostly Mexican or Mexican-American. This culture is very traditional and has trouble being open to the gay community or feminism.

Sofia, sounds awesome. We are excited to help you get this club started at your community college! Here's how we can help.

-You can use our planning tools to plan what actions your club will take to affect change on the issues you care about.
-You can apply for a grant of up to $250 to take action on that plan.
-We can connect you with a mentor and provide feedback on your ideas!

Let us know how we can help.

Hi Sofia,

We wanted to let you know that we are extending the deadline for active projects to apply for a Mini-Grant during this Peace First Challenge to April 15th. You can apply for a mini-grant anytime, but meeting the Challenge deadlines will make you eligible for additional opportunities.

If you do not require a mini-grant to complete your project, you can remain eligible for the Accelerator by completing your project and Reflection before the May 31st deadline! If you submit your project plan by April 15th, we'll be sure to provide you with feedback by April 21st to support you with carrying out the plan.

If you are still in early stages of planning, you are also welcome to apply for a mini-grant at a later date -- although you may not be eligible for some of our larger opportunities, the opportunity for funding and support is always there.

Please let me know if you have any questions, and if we can help in any way!

Best,
Adrian
