What it means to be
Sector Agnostic

Reproductive Rights Advocacy

Women's reproductive rights encompass a range of issues including the ability to access safe and legal abortion, access to birth control, protection from forced sterilization and contraception, access to high-quality reproductive healthcare, and the ability to make informed and autonomous choices about reproduction through education and information.

Russian refugees and political prisoners

The Russian invasion of Ukraine in 2022, has lead to an estimated 1.2 million Russian citizens and residents to flee Russia, Including those who object to military service, and those who are fleeing political persecution. Countless Antiwar Activists have been jailed, and many beaten and executed within Russia.

Microfinance In Latin America

Microfinance is the provision of financial services, such as loans, savings, and insurance, to individuals or small businesses who do not have access to these services through traditional financial institutions. In Latin America the microfinance industry has loaned around $12 billion to over 10 million borrowers which have been critical in lifting people out of poverty.

China-Taiwan Conflict Mitigation

Recently, China has increased its aggression towards Taiwan, including incursions by military jets into Taiwan's airspace and missile launches into the waters surrounding the island. Beijing considers Taiwan to be a part of its territory and has stated its intention to reunify it with mainland China. President Joe Biden has warned that any use of force by China to achieve this goal would be met with a response from the United States likely leading to an large global conflict.

The Russo-Ukrainian War Refugee Relief

The Russo-Ukrainian War began in February 2014 and continues to this day. Russia, along with Russian separatists in Ukraine, attacked Ukraine. The war has included naval incidents, cyberwarfare, and political tensions. In February 2022, the conflict escalated as Russia launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine leading to Europe's largest humanitarian crisis since World War 2.

Criminal Justice Reform

Criminal justice reform addresses problems in the criminal justice system, such as racial bias, police misconduct, excessive criminalization, and mass imprisonment. This can include advocating for changes in laws, policing practices, sentencing, and imprisonment. Additionally, it also addresses the negative long-term effects on individuals that have a criminal record, such as loss of voting rights, housing, and employment opportunities.

Anti-Poaching Advocacy

Illegal wildlife trade is a significant and profitable criminal enterprise run by powerful international networks. Just like illegal drugs and arms, wildlife and animal parts are smuggled on a large scale. Examples of illegal wildlife trade include the poaching of elephants for ivory and tigers for their skins and bones, but many other species are also exploited, including marine turtles and timber trees. Illegal wildlife trade poses a significant threat to the survival of many wild species.

"We work tirelessly to educate and empower individuals and communities around the world. Our efforts provide education, essential resources, and advocacy for various causes, with a focus on promoting social and economic empowerment, protecting the vulnerable, and cultivating a culture of kindness and compassion."
