Welcome Back, Feminist Campus Activists!

By Edwith Theogene

Welcome back to school! For most of you, the 2015-2016 school year has already kicked off – and that means back to books, back to exams, and back to feminist campus activism.  We have some tips to help you get the semester started!

Join a Feminist Group on Campus or FMF Alumnae group! Start the school year off with joining or renewing your membership with your campus feminist group.  If there isn’t one then think about starting one!  We are here to help you get off the ground.  If you have already graduated, join our feminist alumnae group to stay connected to activism and to network with feminists in the professional world.

Our Get Out Her Vote Campaign  gives you the tools, strategies, and resources to get students at your college out to the polls. If you’re interested in tackling voter engagement this semester, please let us know and don’t hesitate to contact the team for questions, guidance, or advice.
