Welcome to the new Card Carrying website! Our e-commerce platform updated recently and we've spent weeks - seriously: WEEKS - working on getting this new site up and running. Web design and the like is not our forte, but we're finally here.
Unfortunately, our blog posts were lost. All of them. So we're starting over! And since feminism equals optimism, we are taking this opportunity to focus even more on our mission: the create a feminist future!
Nothing represents our mission quite like our in-store feminist youth group :)
The Teen Feminist Circle (formerly called Girl Gang) is our peer-led youth group for people aged 13 and up. Mostly high schoolers, TFC members are compassionate, driven, enthusiastic young feminists with open minds and giant hearts! They will be continuing to self-publish the bi-annual 'zine, RISE UP, and will be adding even more activism opportunities to their plates: mini fundraisers, volunteerism days, and field trips.
Two TFC members at their Bake Sale for Choice in May 2019. They raised over $300 for the National Network of Abortion Funds!
If the idea of nurturing a group of smart, bold, passionate young feminists motivates you from wherever you are, please consider becoming a Patron. Previously, we paid for all of their group expenses (snacks, printed copies of the 'zine, 'zine-inspired buttons, etc.) out of our own pockets, since funding a youth group wasn't in our original business plan. And now through this Saturday, September 14th, you'll get an exclusive Card Carrying sticker when you become a Patron! So if you can spare $5 a month, this is a chance for you to support our mission by helping ensure a feminist future for all!
