F.U.N.

Feminists United Now (FUN)

Feminists United Now is a youth-led group working together to educate and advocate with the community on social justice issues we are passionate about. FUN is open to women, femmes, non-binary and trans friends ages 14 – 21.

We want to ensure a safe space for anyone to learn about leadership, organizing, and the different forms they may take. Much of the time, we are told that leaders look a certain way (loud, commanding, confident in public speaking), but we want to empower members to use their voices in a variety of ways (visual arts, singing, writing, group work).

Questions? Contact Joyce via email or phone at 515.244.4901.
