We are the Association of Feminists Fighting Fascism, Imperialism, Refeudalization, and Marginalization.
We are an organization of women engaged in transnational feminist, anti-imperialist activism and dedicated to the fight against oppression in all its forms. Our diverse, multi-ethnic membership is committed to militant movement-building from the United States and effects change through grassroots organizing, trans-ethnic alliance building, education, advocacy and direct action.
We are an all-volunteer, grassroots organization whose members recognize the intersectionality of our struggles and the absolute necessity of women’s revolutionary resistance.
Membership is open to all women of color who are committed to women’s liberation.
With a history of over 20 years of women’s organizing, activism, and struggle, AF³IRM was launched as a organization in 2010, based on a comprehensive analysis of class, race, gender, and sexuality focused on conducting militant movement-building from the United States with a transnational, feminist perspective.
In our previous formation as Gabriela Network (GABNet), we engaged in work from a national democratic perspective, emphasizing support and solidarity for the Philippine movement. After an assessment of our previous work and continued engagement with the struggles and issues of women and our communities, we have moved toward a comprehensive theory-building and practice based on the concrete conditions of our own home territory, the United States, in assessment of and full knowledge of the essence and specific characteristics of our oppression and exploitation as women; as imported or exploited labor or children/descendants of such; and as women of distinct ethnic and cultural minorities.
