It's finally #FRIDAFriday and a great day to meet Sunayra Lanka! Formed in 2016 by three people of #SriLankan heritage, the group members wanted to find a way to contribute to Sri Lanka’s growth and development. In deciding the best way to focus their energy, they started by asking “What does the future of Sri Lanka look like?” This has now become the cornerstone of Sunayra Lanka’s mission. After witnessing the talent, ambition, and optimism in young people, the group members recognized that Sunayra Lanka needed to provide them with a support system to learn and grow. So, their vision is for young people to become the drivers of change in creating their own futures. “We firmly believe that community participation and feedback is the driving force behind our programming, and the only way to create long-lasting and sustainable change,” they say.

The Roots Lab started as a way of accompanying young feminist activists towards innovation and creation. Learn from the inspiring story of Know Your Place! ✨ #Repost @globalfundwomen (@get_repost) ・・・ The “Know Your Place” (KYP) initiative, supported by @rootslab.lb aims to inspire #young #women to defy #gender norms and social constraints, by highlighting the diverse experiences and successes of other women.

👇👇👇👇👇🙌🙌🙌🙌 #Repost @sonaksha (@get_repost) ・・・ Slowly learning that you don't have to feel guilty for not always being accessible. Especially if you're an empath or identify as a highly sensitive person (HSP), setting boundaries can come with a lot of shame. But boundaries are important tools of self care. They not only help us nurture healthy relationships but also provide a much needed membrane to cushion and facilitate our well-being. So the next time someone tries to make you feel bad about having boundaries or being inaccessible, remember that it's okay to say no, it's okay to not always be available. Your needs are needs too, and your boundaries are boundaries for a reason. They ought to be respected. #GardenOfKindness

Through our existence, we are #ChangingTheGame in #philanthropy in transformative ways and moving resources towards sustaining young feminist #organizing, resourcing #LGBT+ organizing all over the world.

We are truly passionate about our work, and we all work tirelessly. Our #activism and our work keep us alive and are an inherent part of ourselves and who we are. Too often we de-prioritize our well-being, physical, and #mentalhealth. We overwork, take our work to our beds, deal with daily #stress and #anxiety, and witness violence and discrimination. What happens when we start believing that taking care of ourselves is in our best #political and #feminist interest? To find ways to derive happiness and joy from our everyday work, as #young feminist #activists and #humanrights defenders, is to take a deliberate stand in challenging the #patriarchal, #hierarchical, and #neoliberal systems that govern us. It means to invest in ourselves first before anyone else, and doing so consciously. Team FRIDA did that and curated the #HappinessManifestx stating clearly that #CareIsPolitical. Did you get a chance to read it yet? https://buff.ly/2UqnA9o #replug

As a #youth-led fund, FRIDA openly supports the courageous #organizing of #young #feminists fighting for #LGBTQIA* rights. FRIDA’s #community is diverse--we are staff, advisors, grantee partners, board members, part-time and full-time consultants--and many of us are #queer, #bisexual, #lesbian, #gender non conforming and #trans* while holding other intersecting #identities. We are not defined by binaries and a lot of the work we do is to ensure that we create a #safe environment for multiple identities to coexist in harmony and learn from each other.⠀ ⠀ ICYMI: here is our #IDAHOBIT2019 statement that urges all of us to fight the phobia and embrace more freedom: https://buff.ly/2LRzfyR (link up in today's Insta story)

The group is made up of a diversity of #compañerxs of different social classes, identities and orientations, with different experiences and knowledge. Their ‘TUM’ Taller de Usos Múltiples--Multiple Use Workshops is the weekly space that functions as a meeting point, as a moment to organize their #activism and as a place where you can have breakfast, lunch and snack and a venue for political reflection. “We like to think of the TUM as the beat of our collective heart,” they say.

This #IDAHOBIT, we are giving shoutouts to #young #feminist groups from FRIDA’s #community who are fighing all the hate, and embracing more #freedom. Armario Abierto in #Colombia is fighting for #LGBT #rights fiercely in their region. They were founded with the mission to promote initiatives that seek to contribute to the construction of fairer living conditions and support the guarantee of lives free of violence for gender non conforming, #queer and #trans people as well those who identify with non normative sexualities. They focus their actions especially on trans women who, due to the conditions in which they carry out #sexwork, find themselves in situations of vulnerability. They have consistently voiced their protest against the systematic #abuses carried by the State against #LGBTIQ community. Here is a #video they recently made to expose the reality of discrimination and #violence agains trans women in Manizales, Colombia: https://buff.ly/2LLK6KN Thank you Armario Abierto for all the work you do in fighting hate and bringing freedom into our society. ⠀ ⠀ #IDAHOBIT2019 #IDAHOBIT #transrights #lgbtrights #humanrights #fightthefear #fighttheforces #fightthephobia #emracefreedom

Observing #IDAHOBIT today, we share more about one of FRIDA’s longest known grantee partner: Women’s Health & Equal Rights Initiative (WHER) @wher_initiative in Nigeria. ⠀ ⠀ A grassroots organization serving the needs of LBQ women in Nigeria, WHER Initiative is a feminist, non-governmental, not for profit, LBQ women-led organization that was born out of a strong desire to improve the situation faced by LBQ women in the country. WHER is focused on advancing and promoting the well-being and rights of LBQ women in Nigeria. They envision a society that respects, accepts and promotes the self-realization of women and girls regardless of their sexual orientation, status, ability and age. Their mission is to provide a platform for the promotion of the wellbeing and protection of the rights of LBQ women in Nigeria through advocacy, education, empowerment, psychosocial support, and research. We are so proud of the work WHER does and celebrate their achievements today! #IDAHOBIT ⠀ ⠀ #IDAHOBIT2019 #IDAHOBIT #transrights #lgbtrights #humanrights #fightthefear #fighttheforces #fightthephobia #emracefreedom

Continuing our stories of amazing #youngfems fighting transphobic, homophobic and biphobic forces everyday, @amra.odbudh Collective is another group to learn more about. They provide a #space to #LGBTQ #artists to showcase their work and have #dialogues centring around #art and liberation of LGBTQIA people in the context in which they operate. Explaining that creative spaces remain largely neglected in India with existing ones being overrun by cis heterosexual artists, this collective’s work centres the #queer experience but not one which exists exclusive of #class, #caste and #ability. They believe that art and #care is radical and can bring people together beyond geographical locations to share a common experience, and understand art which transcends language, and access. We applaud the work of Amra Odbudh Collective today. ⠀ ⠀ #IDAHOBIT2019 #IDAHOBIT #transrights #lgbtrights #humanrights #fightthefear #fighttheforces #fightthephobia #emracefreedom

Happy International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia & Biphobia (IDAHOBIT)! Today, we are spotlighting #young #feminist groups from FRIDA’s community who are fighting homophobic, transphobic and biphobic forces every single day.⠀ ⠀ Founded by a group of young queer women and nonbinary people in #Slovenia, @drustvokvartir emerged as a #queer feminist collective in 2014 to make a space in their local community for #trans and #bisexual individuals, and other overlooked queer #minorities. Kvartir was the first and only organisation in Slovenia to address and raise awareness about bisexuality. Over the past three years they have established a bright and thriving bisexual community, one of the most prominent and active in all of #Europe.

The manifestx [a term meant to emphasize the political nature of the text, while maintaining identity inclusivity] is an integral structural entity of our organizational culture and community, as we unlearn our own practises, call in on each other when we need to pay more attention to our mental health and reminding each other about our right to stay happy and joyful at our workplace.

As we release the #HappinessManifestx, FRIDA is making a commitment to centre #care into our #feminist and #philanthropic institutions. Care is not an individual act of consumption, not a massage or a walk in the woods; care is the people we work with every day, how much we learn to say no and set boundaries and how our workplaces are supporting a work/life #balance that is #sustainable and reflective of our social justice values. ⠀ ⠀ To care for ourselves is to release any guilt that comes with it, and here is a beautiful illustration by @kruttika to remind us all about it.

Las mujeres protegen sus ríos porque son fuente de vida . Ellas se oponen y confrontan a las hidroeléctricas y empresas que pretenden contaminar y privatizar este bien común. Muchas son amenazadas y perseguidas por defender el agua de sus familias y comunidades. ¡Apoyemos y protejamos a nuestras defensoras del territorio y de la vida! #DefensorasDelAgua #MujeresAlPoder #MujeresConstruyendoBuenVivir. .💦🌊🌳🌱Inscríbete al webinario del 22 de marzo, y conversemos sobre la situación de las mujeres en la defensa y cuidado del agua en América Latina 👉🏽👉🏾👉🏿https://bit.ly/2J4lHyN
