From the Mesoamerican Women Human Rights Defenders Initiative to the Malawian Our Bodies, Our Lives Campaign led by HIV+ women, JASS’ movement-building creates the kind of deep collaboration needed to challenge prejudice and to ensure the security of activists in risky contexts.
Alongside the action, JASS documents how change happens in different contexts by bringing scholars and activists together to harvest new ideas and approaches from the field, and then share them widely—like our cutting edge concepts and tools on power adopted by many international organizations and donors.
2016 has been a year of, "mourning and mobilizing". Despite tough circumstances everywhere, JASS is rich with stories of hope and change. It’s been a busy and exciting year for us and we would like to share some of the highlights that have inspired and affirmed the work we do.
