Call for proposals

Trabajamos con grupos, organizaciones y redes ya conformadas, que públicamente inciden en y desde el ámbito local para un mayor acceso a la justicia social y a los derechos humanos. En Acento trabajamos con diversos grupos organizados, independientemente de su denominación y personalidad jurídica.

Sensibles a las necesidades del movimiento de derechos humanos, somos un fondo que se adapta a los contextos ofreciendo diversas modalidades de apoyo flexible enfocadas en fortalecer el trabajo de incidencia en el ámbito local.

Muy pronto grupos, organizaciones y redes podrán participar en las convocatorias abiertas de Acento para acceder a los distintos tipos de apoyos.
