FaunAccion is an intersectional animal rights organization born in the fall of 2015. Our mission is to educate and empower Mexican activists to create change by providing relevant tools and training. Our strategy is to create systemic change on cultural and institutional levels through conferences, workshops talks, forums and mentoring that strengthen voices and promote leadership in historically marginalized communities.
How we helped
This grant allowed us to carry out our second anti-speciesist forum “Building bridges of dialogue and action in Mexico” which focused on activism and Mexican politics. It took place in October 2016 in Mexico City. The grant will also permit us to build our education working group who will focus on developing anti-speciesist educational content for Mexico’s public elementary textbooks and will also help us hold four working group meetings throughout 2016-2017. Lastly the grant will finance FaunAccion’s two yearly internal meetings for the 2016-2017 year.
