Feminist Action Coalition for Today (F.A.C.T.)

The Feminist Action Coalition for Today (F.A.C.T.) was founded in 2010 as an organization aimed at educating others about intersectional feminism and getting a rape crisis center on campus. Through advocacy, protests, and education F.A.C.T. helped the Center for Advocacy, Response, and Education (CARE) by founded in 2016. F.A.C.T. also hosts an annual Take Back the Night event protesting sexual violence on campus. In 2019, F.A.C.T. had its record attendance with over 250 people attending the march and vigil.

Since the founding of CARE, F.A.C.T. has shifted to a more activism-based platform focusing on a multitude of feminist issues including environmental justice, reproductive justice, sexual violence against women, WOC, and trans-people, and access to menstrual products on campus.
