The Young Feminist Fund has developed an online toolkit for resource mobilization dedicated to trans youth! We are trully happy to feature the resoruce at the CSE HUB and we are extending our gratitudes to the FRIDA for their amazing work!
Here what they shared: "Often, as dedicated grassroots organizers that have other full-time jobs or responsibilities, our passion is the main thing that keeps us motivated to fight for social justice. It is this commitment that sustains us during protests rain or shine, motivates us to take risks and speak truth to power, and pushes us to come up with creative ideas to improve the lives of others. As young feminists that are new to the movement, we begin organizing with little experience of mobilizing money and other resources to bolster our activism – making the tasks, at times, even more daunting and overwhelming. It shouldn’t have to be this way. We live in a world of gross wealth inequality, where resources are concentrated amongst a few. Young women, girls, and trans* youth organizers are hard-pressed to access financial resources that would ensure the effectiveness of their work as well as be safe and healthy as human beings. In order to create a more equal and just world, activists, too, have to reclaim money, redistribute resources, and re-imagine new sources of funding. This is why, at FRIDA, we are committed to building the resource mobilization capacities of young women, girls, and trans* youth so they can create long lasting change. So it is with great pride, we share with you, our first Resource Mobilization Toolkit!"
