Astraea Foundation Announces Call for Concept for Climate Justice for Queer Community

Astraea Lesbian Foundation for Justice has just announced a call for concepts for Climate Justice for queer, trans, and intersex communities in the U.S. 


Queerlective recognizes the disproportionate impact the climate crisis has on marginalized individuals and fully supports efforts to find climate justice for those communities. Check out the summary of the grant below and click the link to find out more. 


"I. Summary

The Astraea Lesbian Foundation for Justice is the only philanthropic organization working exclusively to advance queer, trans, and intersex human rights around the globe. We support brilliant and brave grantee partners in the U.S and internationally who challenge oppression and seed change. We work for racial, economic, social, and gender justice, because we all deserve to live our lives freely, without fear, and with dignity.

Astraea has been funding at the intersections of racial, gender, economic and reproductive justice movements, while centering the leadership of Queer and Trans people of color, for forty five years. Astraea’s US Fund centers the liberation of Queer, Trans, Two-Spirit, and Intersex people of color and challenges the criminalization of 2SLBTQI BIPOC, migrants, women of color, mothers, sex workers and youth, among other constituencies who experience high levels of violence and oppression.  Astraea strengthens organizations and movements that acknowledge and fight these multiple barriers to self-determination.

Through this call for concepts, Astraea seeks to award up to 15 one or two year grants in October 2023, totaling approximately $250,000. Grant awards for applications focusing on core support for ongoing work on climate justice will range from $20,000 to $30,000; those for applications focusing on planning for future work on climate justice, either from existing or new groups, will range from $5,000-$10,000. While this new funding program aims to bring additional grantees to our existing portfolio, awards will be considered to current grantees who are working on climate justice or interested in expanding in that direction. To be considered, organizations or groups must be registered or able to be fiscally sponsored in the United States or its claimed territories and must work directly with and for queer, trans, or intersex communities, with strong priority given to BIPOC led and focused organizations.
