Books are for reading… and sharing.

 

Dear friend,

Ever pick up a book and feel it buzz with possibility in your hands? So much potential surges between its covers—it can spark ideas, open new conversations, uncover difficult truths.

That’s why books are mighty tools for building the social justice movements of our time—and why we’re so proud to donate Feminist Press books to our allies fighting for social transformation. Will you contribute to the Meena Alexander Book Donation Fund to sustain this important work?

In the past two years, we’ve donated nearly 600 books to 11 organizations, a total in-kind value of almost $9,500! These donations support our fellow changemakers working on urgent goals like reproductive justice, economic advocacy, and queer community building. Recent recipients include:

  • New York Abortion Access Fund

  • The Women’s Fund of Rhode Island

  • Housing Works

  • Autostraddle A-Camp

  • Ancient Song Doula Services

  • Art Resources Transfer Poulin Project

  • National Institute for Reproductive Health

  • Planned Parenthood NYC

  • Bridgewater International Poetry Festival

  • The Yellowhammer Fund

  • and more!

With your generous support, the power of FP books resonates across our communities and movements. Every $15 funds one donated book—please click here to make a gift of $15, $30, $60, $120, or an amount that feels right to you!

About the Fund: Meena Alexander (1951–2018) was an acclaimed poet, scholar, teacher, and advocate for global gender justice. The author of the lyrical memoir Fault Lines, and a longtime member of the WSQ Editorial Board, Meena leaves an enduring legacy at the Feminist Press. With this fund in her name, we honor her remarkable life, poetic craft, and lifelong dedication to the power of feminist storytelling.

With gratitude,

The FP team
