The Feminist Action Board (formerly G*rls Advisory Board) began in 2005 in Waterville and expanded statewide in 2013. FAB members are in grades 9 – 12 and come together from many different locations across the state. Members work with our staff and Board of Directors to plan events and keep programming relevant to the needs and wants of girls and gender expansive youth. They also contribute to the creation of a world that fosters positive growth and development for all. The FAB Program provides opportunities for leadership experience, engagement in social action projects, and ongoing education to keep the organization current on challenges facing girls and gender expansive youth today. There is no cost to participate in FAB!
FAB’s biggest annual accomplishment is the design and execution of the workshops at the Spring Conferences.
We are a group of Maine high school girls and nonbinary youth who are passionate about gender equity and social justice. We are inclusive of all races, classes, ethnicities, gender identities, sexual orientation, and abilities. We create community conversations, listen to other girls and nonbinary youth, and give them (and ourselves) opportunities to find their voice, support each other, create change, and embrace uniqueness.
Applications open annually in May and close on June 15th.
