To add concrete examples of what the FSFE does, look at the current campaigns :
and work page :

The principle of Fellowship is equivalent to a local team of FSFE (so you can get help for your local team like flyers or ...?). But in the EU you have local team of FSFE,  but also LUG or independant structure... No obligation.
I don't speak German but one of our main activist form Müchen usually speak about FSFE activities ont his blog

You may also meet some members of the FSFE in different conferences, for example :
- in Munich, some fellows have usually a booth at "Corso Leopold"
- in Germany, from the CCC where we had a village last year to the FSFE Summit in Berlin in september),
- or more generally in the EU (for example we have a booth at FOSDEM every year).

Have a nice day,
