JASS’ innovative strategies in leadership, network-building and advocacy amplify the voice, visibility and collective power of women in Southeast Asia, Southern Africa and Mesoamerica. As a global network of activists, popular educators and scholars in 31 countries, we work with women leaders to generate more trust, strength, and safety while they address diverse issues related to health, sexuality, inequality, the right to territory, violence against women and women human rights defenders. JASS Mesoamerica promotes the empowerment and protection of women human rights defenders and activists, mainly of those who defend land, territory and natural goods, through the strengthening of women’s feminist leadership in diverse social movements at the regional level and in Mexico, Honduras and Guatemala. We work from a Feminist Popular Education approach, always in alliance with other organizations. Examples of this are the work we carry out with the Mesoamerican Women Human Rights Defenders Initiative and its national networks, and the platforms with indigenous women in Guatemala, as well as our advocacy, communications and knowledge generation actions.
