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.

My boss doesn’t pay me minimum wage and overtime pay, nor does he give me rest breaks or healthcare. On top of that, he constantly verbally harasses us. This affects my emotions and my family. We are the 99%.
