We celebrate International Women Human Rights Defenders Day with this tribute - UAF A&P's herstory

Over the past four years, UAF A&P has been learning and evolving as a regional feminist fund supporting the resistance and resilience of women and non-binary human rights defenders of Asia and the Pacific. We are often asked who we are and what we do, and this video is a conversation starter - we hope activists and defenders we support are able to seee themselves represented and their situations and contexts highlighted.

We continue to stand in solidarity and co-responsibility to support and sustain feminist activists and their movement building.
