When I came across FRIDA: The Young Feminist Fund a few months ago I fell into a kind of ally-partner-network love daze. Working across the global south, they’re “… committed to bridging the gap between young feminist groups and access to resources.” And they seem to do it oh so well.
Since then, I’ve been lucky enough to be thinking with one of their associates, @nadiael, who works across the MENA region and other parts of Africa. We’ve come up with what I think is a super exciting and on point project around digital security and self-care for young feminist activists and innovators. It weaves together many areas of Edgeryders work - such as the MENA Youth Platform, the Research Network, OpenVillage/the Reef and the Academy.
As we begin to explore funding pathways (@nadiael is in NYC at the Commission on Women flagging it as we speak), we thought to open it up to our collective braintrust - you - and see if you had any feedback or thoughts.
So when and if you have a moment, please take a look at a 2.5pg concept note here and let us know what you think.
