FRIDA is interested in supporting creative and innovative strategies, including art, music, culture, poetry, and social media. We’ve funded organizers in Mexico working for women’s and LGBTQ rights, who led self-defense classes and put on periodic art performances and installations to inform the general population about how gender violence results in hate crimes against women in their area. In Turkey, FRIDA grantees organized a massive campaign on HIV+/AIDS through 42 cities. A FRIDA grantee partner in Mozambique organized life skills trainings, judicial accompaniment, medical accompaniment and psychosocial support, among others. They plan to establish a transit centre for offering temporary shelter to their clients and have trained other members who work as activists in the community.
FRIDA’s grantee partners bring social justice to their communities through four major lenses:
1) Raising individual awareness
2) Increasing equitable access to resources and services
3) Transforming the legal & policy environment
4) Transforming social values, practices and norms.
