JOIN THE NETWORK TO ENFORCE THE WORK ON WOMEN'S RIGHTS #UNIDAS
Our network was launched on 28 May 2019 with the aim of fostering dialogue between members and allies whose goal is to create a society that offers equal opportunities and gender justice. Since then, 160 founding members from Latin America, the Caribbean and Germany and nine partner organisations have joined the network. Our vision is to continue growing and to bring about real change by standing together!
Unidas is at the heart of the Latin America and Caribbean Initiative of the Federal Foreign Office under the patronage of Foreign Minister Heiko Maas. Our mission is to support women’s rights and equality movements in serving as a driving force in tackling discrimination. We want to strengthen participation in politics, culture, the media, society, business and academia and to create a network of peacekeepers who strive to counter violence and foster peaceful coexistence.
„There can be no genuine democracy without the concept and practical realisation of gender equality. That is why anyone who calls themselves a true democrat should, without any ifs or buts, work to promote women’s rights and equality.“
FOREIGN MINISTER HEIKO MAAS
We want to connect our members and supporters so that they can share ideas, pool resources and raise their voices together. We are already working with nine partner organisations.
