Justification of the choice of Strategic Mini Grants

 

The Decision Group and the FemFund team have selected 6 additional strategic grants that complement the selection of Applicants with topics and perspectives close to the Fund’s priorities.

In this editions, strategic grants are awarded to:

1. Two Wings UA Foundation (Olsztyn) – due to the fact that among the 19 applications selected by the community, there was no application for grassroots activities undertaken by migrant and refugee women in Poland, in particular outside the largest cities. The Decision Group recognized that Two Wings Foundation operates within the local migrant community in Olsztyn and has understood the needs of this particular group of women well.

2. Lodz Tenants Association (Lodz) – due to the fact that we see the need to support actions for the labor rights of women and other persons in danger of multiple discrimination. Although the issue of working conditions concerns the vast majority of women and persons in Poland, we can see that this topic is rarely taken up by FemFund Grantees and is not often present in mainstream messages about feminism.

3. Confederation of Youth’s Work (Warsaw) – ze względu na to, że widzimy potrzebę wspierania działań na rzecz praw pracowniczych kobiet i innych osób narażonych na wielokrotną dyskryminację. Choć kwestia warunków pracy dotyczy ogromnej większości kobiet i osób w Polsce, widzimy, że temat ten jest rzadko podejmowany przez Grantobiorczynie FemFundu i mało obecny w mainstreamowych przekazach dotyczących feminizmu.

4. NeuroQueer PGR (Malowka) – due to the fact that, among the grants selected by the community, there was a lack of anarchist initiatives that challenge the capitalist models of action and focus on creating alternative, self-sufficient communities.

5. Sztum Women’s Strike (Sztum) – due to the fact that we see the need to support local activist groups that arose on the wave of women’s strikes, especially in small cities. The Decision Group recognized that the actions of the Sztum Women’s Strike (WenDo workshops, drumming workshops – protest samba) are an opportunity to strengthen activists and involve new people, a fact that may contribute to long-term change at the local level.

6. tranzycja.pl (whole Poland, online activities) – due to the fact that the Applicant community did not choose any application of trans and non-binary persons, who are an important part of the FemFund community. The Decision Group has decided to support the activities of tranzycja.pl because it is based on the value of self-help within the community and fills an important gap in access to knowledge about the safe administration of hormones in the process of transition.
