The Astraea Lesbian Foundation for Justice works for social, racial and economic justice in the U.S. and internationally. The Foundation grantmaking and philanthropic advocacy programs help lesbians and allied communities challenge oppression and claim their human rights.

Many of their grantee partners utilize art and cultural projects as powerful tools for resistance and inspiration—necessary components in building a future guaranteeing human rights for all.
