The Individual / Organizational Membership is open to individuals and organizations who are (a) actively engaged in working on the issue of FGM/C and (b) based in the United States and (c) aligned with and committed to supporting the Network’s values. Each voting member shall be eligible to vote in Network elections, participate in member listserves, working groups and discussion groups, serve on the Steering Committee, and access member-only events and materials. Organizations with multiple members shall appoint one voting representative for the organization.
The International Membership is open to organizations and individuals that are not based in the United States and are actively engaged in working on the issue of FGM/C and are aligned with and committed to supporting the Network’s values. International members may participate in member listserves, working groups and discussion groups, and access member-only events and materials.
Alignment with the Network’s values is critical. For example, organizations that tie the FGM/C issue to an anti-immigration or religious discrimination agenda are not appropriate members of the Network. Visit our membership policy and process page to learn more.
There is no membership fee. Instead, members are strongly encouraged to contribute to the work of the Network.
