FIRE, Feminists Igniting Resistance and Empowerment

FIRE is a feminist organization aimed at igniting communities toward progressive social change, while also creating a space for and centering the voices of those who have been erased, marginalized, or made invisible within these communities. FIRE recognizes that there are various ways to enact and envision feminism. They privilege knowledge that has been gained through struggle and experience, and acknowledge that many individuals inhabit multiple identities. FIRE seeks to employ consciousness-raising, education, and activism in order to confront the injustices that affect not only the local communities of Manhattan and the Kansas State campus, but also those who live beyond our local borders.

We are a diverse group and welcome everyone interested in upholding our mission. Please feel free to contact us or join us at a meeting! Visit our website at https://ksufire.wixsite.com/fire for more information.
