AZ FAN Stands for Arizona Feminist Action Network

AZ FAN is a loose band of anti-patriarchal, anti-capitalist, anti-racist, anti-ableist, anti-heteronormative, anti-cisnormative, and anti-hierarchical fanatics. We are passionate about spreading cultures of mutual aid, accountability, and resistance. We are figuring out what that means specifically to this region where white supremacy, dogmatic nationalism and prison slavery is at our throats, and patriarchy is internalized by anyone without question. We come together to actively support and aid each other in separate projects, actions, and endeavors. AZ FAN is not an organization - we are a network, confronting and dismantling all fronts of oppression.

Consent means

everyone present wants and agrees to be present each step of the way.

This isn’t necessarily the right definition as consent changes to fit your relationships, not the other way around. How do you define consent?

Asking for It: A Consent Workshop →

Time: Tuesday, July 19 · 7:00pm - 9:00pm


Location: Rusty Spoke Bicycle Collective 1023 Grand Ave. (access from the alley off of Taylor St.) Phoenix, AZ 


Are you asking for it?

Join the Arizona Feminist Action Network for a FREE workshop on negotiating consent in your intimate relationships (and the rest of your life). Learn how practicing good consent can be fun, sexy, and empowering!

Topics covered in the workshop include:

• Common features of good consent in relationships
• Defining your own boundaries and what consent means to you
• Role playing scenarios and strategies for saying “No” and “Yes”
• A fun activity to practice your newly honed consent-building skills

Keep in mind that we will be discussing very personal topics at this workshop. Although you will not be required to share anything you’re not comfortable sharing, some of these issues can trigger emotions from past traumatic experiences. If you have any specific accommodations you’d like us to make, please message Elise or Sean, or talk to us before the workshop.

This workshop is open to people of all genders, orientations, and relationship styles.

ASL interpretation will be provided.

Bottled water and light refreshments will be provided.

The event will be held at the Rusty Spoke Bicycle Collective at 1023 Grand Ave. Here’s a map: http://rustyspoke.org/imag​es/rs-map.png

If you’re planning on driving to the workshop and will have room in your vehicle, please post on the event wall what area you’re coming from so other participants can contact you for a ride share.
