Neighborhood Feminists was founded in 2019 by three individuals who met through activism. Founding members Anneloes, Camila and Tammy have diverse backgrounds and collective experience in grassroots organizing, (international) development projects, and other kinds of community-based activism. The NF team consists of the board, two staff members and some fantastic volunteers, who give Neighborhood Feminists more latitude as an organization to handle projects beyond Menstruation Stations, as well. (And if you’re inspired to join, fill out our form!)

Lotte van Es, secretary she/her

By day, Lotte explores contemporary photographic practice as a curator and collection manager at Huis Marseille. Off-duty, she’s a self-proclaimed pottery pro and board game boss. Her creativity and empathy fuel her work – and as the secretary of NF Lotte doesn’t just take notes, as she likes rolling up her sleeves and getting busy with NF’s practical activism.
