Mission & Vision
Aswat works to challenge all forms of oppression and seed change through empowering and inspiring a vibrant, mature, strong, and proactive feminist leadership.
Aswat’s mission is to fuel our feminist-queer movements and shift power to LBTQI women by investing in capacity building, fostering collective feminist action, advocating for sexual diversity and gender justice, amplifying LBTQI+ women voices and propelling queer-feminist organizing through leadership development.
Aswat works to challenge all forms of oppression and seed change through empowering and inspiring a vibrant, mature, strong, and proactive feminist leadership, and rally them around the centrality of queer liberation for a free and just society.
Aswat remains the only group in Palestine that is entirely composed of queer and trans women and directly works on issues related to women, gender and sexuality, from an intersectional feminist and queer perspectives.
We envision a Palestinian society that respects individual and collective rights and freedoms, embraces the diversity of its members, including the sexual and gender diversity of LGBTQIA+ people, fights all forms and shades of oppression and promotes gender justice.
