“A gender justice approach needs to be at the forefront
of our response not only to this current crisis but to the
longstanding challenges of inequality that persist in
– Surina Khan, CEO Women’s Foundation California
As we grapple with an ongoing pandemic, a spike in domestic abuse as a result of COVID-19, and police violence in Black communities, we’ve established our Relief and Resilience Fund.
Starting in March, we moved new and increased funding to Women’s Foundation California grantee partners, and channelled funding to every domestic violence shelter in California caring for survivors and families who are unsafe or unhoused. The racial, economic, and gendered impacts of COVID-19 are profound.
We’re committed to advancing a feminist plan for California’s economic recovery. Through our new partnership with the Office of the Governor of California we look to expand funding and reach our $50 million goal.
We realize now more than ever, it’s critical we make bold acts of solidarity, listen to and support organizations founded and led by Black women, transgender, and gender non-conforming folk.
The future needs a feminist plan driven by community power. Donate today and support an intersectional gender justice response to this crisis. Looking for other ways to give? See your options
