As a youth-led activist fund, our voice matters.
We see our role in the media as an important one and take utmost responsibility and care in ensuring that our opinions reflect our politics and affiliations. Several members of the FRIDA community write, co-write and pen their personal and political reflections on deeply engaging topics. We have also been fortunate to receive some spotlight–our work, our community members and our funding model–by other media platforms and individuals. Check it out!
