In this age of the global rise of the right wing, outright misogyny is more blatant, reproductive rights are under threat, hate crimes are increasing. In the context of this political moment, in 2016 Grassroots Global Justice Alliance (GGJ) began developing the Feminist Organizing School (FOS) model. In collaboration with grassroots organizers and leaders, the curriculum was developed drawing from the existing expertise within our women of color and queer identified membership in the grassroots organizing sector and from our relationship with other feminist movements. The FOS is designed to be a space for grassroots leaders to create a shared vision for the grassroots internationalist feminist movement we hope to build.

Now GGJ is partnering with EDGE Funders Alliance and Thousand Currents to bring this opportunity to our allies in philanthropy.

We are excited to announce a Feminist Organizing School (FOS) for Funders from June 1-5, 2020 in Santa Cruz, California. In the face of this political moment, the FOS will provide a space for philanthropic leaders to come together and create a shared vision for feminist funding frameworks and practices. Through intensive training, we will delve into a theoretical and historical consideration of the intersections of patriarchy, homophobia, transphobia, white supremacy and climate change, and will support each other in the task of bringing a feminist approach to our daily work within progressive philanthropy.
