NewMexicoWomen.Org is excited to announce that from 2019 - 2021, our gender justice and healing work will include intentional support for organizations and programs specifically serving adolescent girls of color. We invite community partners from around the state to apply for our 2019 grant cycle, which opens today!
The objectives of the 2019 Adolescent Girls of Color Grants are to:
- Strengthen the gender justice movement in New Mexico by partnering primarily with organizations working with and/or serving adolescent girls of color, as well as low income and rural communities working on behalf of adolescent girls in New Mexico.
- Foster community health by supporting culturally rooted and relevant healing programs and efforts for adolescent girls of color.
- Educate decision-makers and community members on the dynamics of racism, patriarchy, and colonization and the effects they have on adolescent girls of color.
- Increase our understanding of how organizations and communities across the state define and work towards gender justice and healing for adolescent girls of color.
Grants will go toward organizations or programs that support adolescent girls of color, with an emphasis on work that encompasses gender justice and healing. The grant portal opens on July 5th. You can prepare now by checking the grant application details and the eligibility criteria on our website here.
