Neighborhood Feminists was founded in 2019 by three individuals who met through activism. The founding members have diverse backgrounds and collective experience in grassroots organizing, (international) development projects, and other kinds of community-based activism. The NF team includes two coordinators and a small number of fantastic volunteers, who give Neighborhood Feminists more latitude as an organization to handle projects beyond Dignity Kits, as well. (And if you’re inspired to join, fill out our form!)
