How do we organize IM-Defensoras?
We are a convergence made up of national networks of women defenders, founding organizations, and a regional team. Each national network is made up of women defenders and organizations from different social movements; some organize themselves through territorial networks and they all have a coordinating operational team that promotes the work on Feminist Holistic Protection (FHP) within the country. We organize ourselves at the regional level through a directors’ team, coordinators and/or teams for each FHP strategy, and working groups or commissions. Our highest decision-making body is the Steering Group, which is made up of representatives from the networks, the founding organizations, and the regional team.
