The Association of Filipinas, Feminists Fighting Imperialism, Re-feudalization, and Marginalization

The F Word's Charlene Sayo and Helen Polychronakos interview Jollene Levid, National Chairperson of the AF3IRM, the Association of Filipinas, Feminists Fighting Imperialism, Re-feudalization, and Marginalization, which is a national organization of women engaged in transnational feminist, anti-imperialist activism. AF3IRM is committed to militant movement-building from the United States and effects change through grassroots organizing, trans-ethnic alliance building education, advocacy and direct action. This past fall, AF3IRM, alongside the Mariposa Center for Change launched the Stand with Grace Campaign in support of Grace Grande, 40, and her two sons. They are seeking political asylum from persecution, prosecution and possible bodily harm stemming from Ms. Grande’s refusal to continue as a concubine of a powerful Philippine politician nearly double her age.
