Happy #BlackHistoryMonth ! There are countless people and achievements to recognize and celebrate this month, and we’d like to highlight those voices you may not always hear. Chardonnay Madkins said it best in her article, “History Continues to Shape Black Survivors’ Realities” on endrapeoncampus.org, “despite the unique challenges Black survivors face, they are often underrespresented in the national conversation, which is reflective of previous social justice movements, such as the Civil Rights Movement and Women’s Liberation Movement. When Black survivors are vastly erased and replaced with narratives of heterosexual White women, we continue to perpetuate the exact oppressive systems that subject Black survivors to violence and preserve a culture of silence. Alternatively, once we acknowledge how America’s history continues to impact the Black community, we can begin to center some of these narratives and better serve all survivors”. We hear you, #WeBelieveYou , and we are here to make sure all voices and stories are able to be told and heard.
It’s #Saturday, everyone’s favorite day of the week! While you start your #mardigras weekend fun, keep in mind that #consent can not be given by someone who is intoxicated, and that the only thing they’re asking for is a possible hangover. #nomeansno #consentismandatory
Abuse can come in many forms and from anyone, including significant others, family, friends, or strangers. Be aware of the signs and talk to someone you trust if you need to step away from an abusive relationship. Thanks to @breakthecycle for sharing this chart.
From the recent #WomensMarch . In 2018, we’re demanding accountability 👊🏽 #boyswillbeheldaccountable
Do you have consent? If your response to this question wasn’t enthusiastically positive, you’re lacking #consent. It’s that simple. #consentismandatory
