Urgent Action Fund – Asia & Pacific
Over the past four years, UAF A&P has been learning and evolving as a regional feminist fund supporting the resistance and resilience of women and non-binary human rights defenders of Asia and the Pacific.
This film is a conversation-starter; I co-directed and animated it, illustrating their story of growing and empowering women and non-binary human rights defenders in Asia and Pacific and creating a network of care and support together.
