New Year, New Feminist Activism: Important Dates for Action in 2016

By Feminist Campus Team

Happy New Year, fabulous feminists! We here at Feminist Campus want to wish you a year filled with warmth, wellness and feminist activism!

2015 was a big year for us-we built national mobilizations and movements, broke historical barriers,  made major strides in policy and legislation, created beautiful art and even gave Drake a feminist remix! In 2016, we want to go bigger, better and harder than we ever have-and we’ve compiled this handy dandy list of dates where you and your campus group can mobilize in the first half of 2016!

Part of Feminist Campus’s Feminist Resolutions are to keep growing our community of amazing activists, organizers and change makers-which we aim to achieve through our National Young Feminist Leadership Conference! Registration for Feminist Majority Foundation’s 12th Annual National Young Feminist Leadership Conference is currently open! *shoots off confetti cannon*. Hop on over to our NYFLC 2016 portal to get connected to other attendees, stay up to date with information and to get excited to meet up with us in Washington, D.C.!
