She The People

A Peacemaking Project by Olivia L.

What is the injustice we are solving?

Today, gender bias continues to create huge barriers for many women. Ongoing struggles include ensuring equal economic opportunities, educational equity, and an end to gender-based violence.

Hi Olivia,

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

Olivia -- with you on this! Gender bias is so important, and I love your deep thinking about the terrible and far-reaching consequences of this bias.

What are your plans for taking this on? If you have some ideas, we'd love to hear them! If you're still brainstorming -- great! Feel free to ask us any questions you have, or use our materials at peacefirst.org/resources to start working out a solution.

Can't wait to see what you do to change the game and create a more equitable world!
