This category lists articles that concern fan activism.

According to Wikipedia, "activism, in a general sense, can be described as intentional action to bring about social or political change". In the case of fan communities, activism is often related to fans proactively working to support the text they're fannish about — for example, Save Our Show campaigns that seek to reverse the cancellation of a TV show. Fans also engage in a different form of activism when they pool resources together to make wider social change, such as the mass-fundraising for a nonprofit cause that occurs via activities such as the Sweet Charity auctions.

This category can contain articles that concern all of the above and more that relate to fans being activists.
