The mailing list is there for nationwide networking. Here you can find out everything important. Information/topics that can be sent on the mailing list are, for example:

  • Information on interesting events
  • Call for Papers/ Participation/ Speakers
  • Information on feminist issues, data protection, net politics, digital self-defence, handicraft fun, etc.
  • Information on the Haecksen organisation and events
  • Questions about Haecksen/technology/feminism/x
  • Questions about connections/help/experiences/x
  • No attachments should be sent on mailing lists.
  • If it is not explicitly allowed, the sender should be asked for permission before forwarding an email from this list to other people who are not on this list.

To remove your address from the list, send a message to: haecksen-unsubscribe [ät]

If you know a person personally who would also like to be on the Haecksen list and who identifies with the Haecksen definition, please do the following:

- The known Haeckse replies to liste [ät] and confirms or vouches for the new person.
- The admin haecksen put the new haeckse on the mailing list and send out the welcome email.
