for building cross-regional, cross-movement solidarity in the struggle for progressive and feminist economic policy
This grant is for the Sustainable Markets Foundation, which hosts Regions Refocus, an organization that builds cross-regional, cross-movement solidarity in the struggle for progressive and feminist economic policy, sparking alliances and strengthening analysis to challenge the dominant, neoliberal development framework. Regions Refocus collaborates on policy workshops, organizes collective research projects, and grows advocacy coalitions. This grant will support Regions Refocus in its three core areas of work: the Gender and Trade Coalition; Post-Colonialisms Today; and Economic and Vaccine Imperialism.
