When the pandemic hit, JASS started where we always have - with women’s lives and needs - which allowed us to strengthen and sustain their organizing in crisis. We are proud of how JASS in a moment of fundamental leadership transition was able to take our political accompaniment and movement support work to another level as we became responsive to the context.
Over a dozen global organizations that work for the protection of women human rights defenders, have created a historical document containing urgent measures for the protection of women human rights defenders.
