UltraViolet is combining innovative, cutting-edge organizing with grassroots, people-powered actions to fight for equality and progress.

Grantee Profile

UltraViolet is a growing community of women and men across the U.S. mobilized to fight sexism and expand women’s rights, from politics and government to media and pop culture. UltraViolet works on a range of issues, including health care, economic security, violence, and reproductive rights. It combines innovative, cutting-edge organizing with grassroots, people-powered actions to fight for equality and progress. Some of UltraViolet’s successful campaigns include a rally in NYC and other grassroots action that pushed Facebook to name its first woman board member; a petition asking Reebok to drop its sponsorship of a rapper after he released a song about raping women, which was signed by nearly 100,000 women and generated over 500 news articles; and a campaign that culminated in Congress passing an expanded and improved Violence Against Women Act.
