The UU Women’s Federation and Standing on the Side of Love are offering ten ‘Stay in It’ grants to help women leaders with dependents.
The Unitarian Universalist Women’s Federation and Standing on the Side of Love announced August 1 that they are offering ten “Stay in It” grants to women leaders in the Movement for Black Lives who are caring for children or dependents. “We have heard about the extra pressures that many women leaders are facing trying to do this work as well as caring for families,” says a blog post on the Standing on the Side of Love site. “We hope this fund will be of use, and inspire other donors and funders to support leaders in movement for Black lives as they continue to persevere in their organizing.” Applications must be completed by August 25.
The UU Women’s Federation is a membership organization that “advances justice for women and promotes their spiritual growth.” Standing on the Side of Love is a public witness campaign sponsored by the Unitarian Universalist Association “with the goal of harnessing love’s power to challenge exclusion, oppression, and violence based on sexual orientation, gender identity, immigration status, race, religion, or any other identity.”
