Gender Justice Fund

Announcement for Gender Justice Fund

Women, girls, transgender, and gender non-conforming people are the targets of systemic oppression based on gender identity and/or gender expression. Gender justice exists when all people—especially women, girls, transgender and gender non-conforming people—are able to identify and express their gender and sexual orientation without fear, discrimination or harm, and have the economic, social, and political power and resources to make healthy decisions for themselves, their families and their communities in all areas of their lives.

The Gender Justice Fund is a special fund at Bread & Roses.. The first grants were made in the Gender Justice Fund in 2018.
