----Awareness----

Social attitudes, policies and decision- making is only possible through the sustained demands and organized actions. Our scope of awareness encompasses the struggles in women’s personal lives for dignity, safety, equality and control of their bodies, as centrally as their shared organizing and leadership in public arenas. All our work is imbued with an understanding of the need to challenge and transform power relationships so that women and other socially isolated vulnerable groups can rise and flourish.

----Action----

We stand to defends the rights and interests of women, but also upholds the equal value of all persons, transforming inequalities shaped by race, ethnicity, class and income, sexuality, ability, location, age and other factors. We build community actions that are responsive to human rights urgencies and opportunities for action.

----Advocacy----

Blue Veins advocacy efforts reflect the diverse dreams, passion and power of women/girls, transgender people and other socially isolated groups acting for change. Advocacy activities are aimed at tapping into and mobilizing the power of women’s numbers and knowledge in order to influence and hold accountable the powerful institutions that make and enforce laws, and distribute resources. we advocate for women/girls and transgender people but most importantly, we want to empower these groups to advocate for themselves.

Blue Veins Organization

Blue Veins is born out of a need for information, activism and grass root organizing towards the empowerment of women and other socially isolated groups. Today Blue Veins works to empower communities towards improving their status which is essential to realizing the full potential of social, political and economic development.

Blue Veins believes every individual despite of their sexual orientation and gender identity should have the opportunity to shape their future by naming their hopes, aspirations and dreams. But too often, their voices are muted, suppressed, ignored. Blue Veins works to overcome the barriers silencing women/girls & transgender people.
