Welcome New Movement Makers!

Welcome New Movement Makers!

We are thrilled to introduce the newest group of Movement Makers. These 20 inspiring individuals were carefully chosen for their visionary leadership and movement mindsets. They come from diverse backgrounds, representing a variety of organizations, including some that work to end sexual violence in the U.S. military, strengthen advocates to confront violence in Asian-American communities, and engage men in redefining masculinity so it includes respect for women. This cohort will continue the incredible work that the pilot Cohort 1 has begun over the last 20 months.

In July, we received more than 140 applications from passionate, visionary activists from across the country. Thank you to all of you who applied and who encouraged others to apply. The overwhelming number and quality of applicants demonstrates both a great desire and great readiness for change.  We look forward to engaging all our collective wisdom and experience as we chart a new way forward together.

Our new Movement Makers bring vision, strategic thinking, a commitment to social change, a movement-mindset, and a deep belief that together we can end violence against girls and women. This group is well-positioned to carry forward the incredible work begun by the pilot cohort and is excited to be in community with all of you as we do this important work together.

We are humbled by the great hunger for this kind of investment in the field and are committed to honoring that by doing our best to inspire and engage the greater community of extraordinary leaders ready for a renewed movement.

You will be hearing more about these Movement Makers and the work we’re doing together in the coming weeks and months. In the meantime, please join us (post a comment!) in welcoming our new Movement Makers!
