Convening

SUPPORT FOR INCLUSIVE CONVENINGS

The Freedom Fund believes that convenings can be critical venues for movement building in the anti-slavery space. However, survivors and other marginalised individuals are often excluded from opportunities to attend, lead and shape their agendas – resulting in convenings that reinforce existing power imbalances and, ultimately, preventing the development of a more cohesive and powerful movement. We provide small grants to promote more inclusive convenings and ensure meaningful inclusion of survivors.

Grants take two forms: support for convenings and support for survivor participation in convenings. More details about these funding opportunities, including criteria and application processes, are available here.
