The Mass NOW Foundation is a social policy education organization focused on building the intersectional feminist community in Massachusetts and raising awareness for issues facing women and girls.
The flagship program of the Mass NOW Foundation is our annual Feminism in Action Grant. The Feminism in Action Program seeks to inspire young feminists (people under 30) to use $3,000 in grant funds to improve the lives of women and girls by creating an education-based project in Massachusetts. Feminism in Action projects must relate to one or more of Mass NOW’s priority issue areas. Some examples include: creating a public education media campaign on transgender equal rights, starting a sexual health resource center at your school or in your community, or organizing a conference on domestic violence.
