FANM provides assistance to many women who deal with domestic violence, physical and mental health issues, unemployment, and poverty. We are committed to educating all our members to challenge gender biases in daily life. This is also our occasion to highlight our many accomplishments and thank our funding partners, sponsors, donors, FANM members, staff, and volunteers. Please join us in commemorating FANM’s thirty years of community service and activism!”
