2019 has been a transformative year for Women’s March Global. We made radical transparency and accountability our goal. We entered into fruitful collaborations in pursuit of our shared human rights. We created toolkits and webinars that impacted tens of thousands of people. We’ve run global campaigns that have reached millions. And, most importantly, we supported local women human rights defenders and activists in their fight for justice.
And yet there is still so much more to do.
Our Global Community of Members and Chapters continue to demonstrate the incredible value and power of this movement. They show up and speak out despite the greatest of odds - sometimes at their own personal risk. This is why movements like ours exist - because we know that even a small number of people dedicated to creating action and breaking down systemic barriers can create lasting change.
We know as an organisation and as a movement that there is no other option. It is our duty as citizens on this planet to make it better for those around us. So we will continue to fight, to protest, to speak out, to show up, and to centre the voices of those most marginalised and impacted by systemic issues because we owe it to each other. This annual report is a direct reflection of our commitment to fighting for collective liberation.
To our Global Community of sisters, allies, and friends around the world - thank you for all that you do in support of our shared freedom. Thank you for being our most consistent teachers, our strongest leaders, and our greatest hope.
In Community and Solidarity,
