The Feminist Action Collective was formed the day after the election in 2016.

Just over a year later, over 1700 strong, the mood has changed from one of trauma post-election to one of celebration.

And as people gathered last weekend for the Twin Ports Women's March, that celebratory feeling could be traced back to "resist" ("policies that discount our shared humanity and try to silence many community voices," says FACilitator Andrea Crouse) and "persist" (to move forward with many diverse voices for the common good").

More information about the Feminist Action Collective can be found on Facebook and their web site.
