STAND PROJECT

ABOUT STAND

 

The STAND (Support Training Advocacy Network Development) pilot project brings INAR’s principles of centering lived experience, representation and voice, intersectional analysis, its innovative data systems and community development ethos to harness the opportunities in the leadership potential of minorities. The project will empower minorities to lead partnerships that drive social change through our institutions. It will build on INAR’s know-how and tools for empowering and supporting minorities, build better alliances with civil society groups, and together devise ways to address institutional racism.
