Action Femme Et Eco-Justice (AFECOJU) was created in 2015. They fight for the recognition and access to human and environmental rights, especially land rights and water rights, of women, young feminists and other marginalized groups, including transgender people, as well as for climate and environmental justice and gender equality to combat all forms of violence suffered by marginalized groups. The group’s vision is to contribute to the building of a strong movement in which the marginalised and vulnerable sections of society make their voices heard through mobilization actions, campaigning, awareness raising, training, lobbying and advocacy that effectively change laws and policies.
One of the great successes of this group has been the creation of a community space where young women and young feminists and other groups meet frequently to share their stories of surviving violence. The group has managed to defend and restore land rights to young, rural women, whose land was confiscated as a result of feudal land policies. This success was made possible by the lobbying, mobilization and advocacy actions of the group’s activists.
