The Feminist Assembly is the national decision-making and organizing body of FIST and involves a higher participation level and greater access and therefore involves more screening to ensure the safety and security of our active members. Members who join the Feminist Assembly will also be added to our email discussion list and be able to debate, consense, and vote on policies, bylaws, actions, participate in committees, and more.

Please note that joining the Feminist Assembly listserve entails sharing your email and display name with the group, it is not a web forum or social media page.
