Movements in the New Normal
Our second virtual event will look at what the new normal means for human rights movements. Our panellists will reflect on Black Lives Matter, Pride 2020, and #MeToo, and what Covid means for movement-building going forward.
The funds we raise through the virtual series will go towards our Covid Response Fund, which provides cash-for-work, period products and food for women struggling financially during the crisis, sets up hotlines for domestic abuse survivors, and provides quarantine refuge facilities for at-risk women and children.
We are suggesting a minimum donation of £20 for each Live Stream event you tune into. We are a charity entirely funded by donations, that help us continue our work worldwide. You can also become a monthly donor to make an ongoing contribution to our efforts and allow us to sustain our programmes. Find out more here.
Please note that our system requires your card details to process your booking, but you will not be charged unless you choose to make a donation. We appreciate this is a challenging time financially for many people, so if you can’t afford to support us at this time, you are welcome to sign up without making a donation at this point in time.
Virtual events series
Our series of weekly virtual events is raising funds for our emergency UN Women Covid Response Fund.
During the ongoing COVID crisis, UN Women is working alongside the WHO to ensure that women’s needs are heard, and that they receive the protection they need at this time. Women have been profoundly affected by COVID-19: they are disproportionately represented among healthcare workers, unpaid carers, and as victims of domestic violence. All these groups are facing increased pressure as a result of social isolation and the public health crisis.
This vietual fundraiser series aims to spotlight various challenges faced by women during this time, but also to spread a positive message about how we can stay united and keep vulnerable women safe.
All our virtual events will be held on Zoom. Once you sign up to this event, you will receive the relevant dial-in details by email.
