While our co-founder, Amanda, shared this last week, she wanted to make sure that victim-survivors of campus sexual assault, know that they have an ally and supporter with @survjusticeinc. With Betsy DeVos' actions to try to change Title IX guidance and regulations with regards to how educational institutions are handling Title IX enforcement, SurvJustice is offering FREE LEGAL SERVICES to survivors of campus sexual assault who are negatively impacted by DeVos' efforts to repeal and change Title IX guidance. Additionally, @knowyour9 and @endrapeoncampus are great resources for survivors dealing with campus sexual assault and trying to understand what is happening with Title IX regulations. Both organizations have resources for people who want to support survivors and create change. @endrapeoncampus specifically offers direct support for survivors and free referrals for mental health professionals and legal help. And for anyone impacted by campus sexual assault, we believe you, we are here to support you, and if you wish to share your story, anonymously or otherwise, please reach out to us, and check out our website-link in bio, for more information about how to participate in our project and for a list of resources for survivors.

Thank you @ihollagram for sharing this image, because every body is beautiful no matter it's shape, form, size, etc. Size should not dictate our what we consider to be beautiful, we should get to decide and define for ourselves what beauty is and what it looks like. And size should not dictate whether or not people are able to access public spaces.

Te creemos Valentina, al igual como le creímos a Nábila y como le creeremos a todas las mujeres que denuncien violencia machista. Estaremos ahí para todas y cada una de ellas, apoyándolas, acompañándolas.
Porque en Chile nos cuestionan cuando denunciamos, nos culpan cuando no somos capaces de alejarnos de esos círculos de violencia y nos dejan solas cuando queremos alzar la voz.
Ante un escenario tan desolador, donde el patriarcado no solo busca dividirnos, sino que nos oprime día a día y nos mata, lo único que nos queda es creernos, unirnos y luchar juntas. Nos vemos el jueves a las 19 hrs. en #plazaitalia !

Repost from @thejessicaraven "hello today I intend to impress you much more than I did yesterday. last may, I worked to relaunch the Safe Bars program and we trained our first bar. In June, we #hiredNona, my fierce and amazing colleague, to build a program that addresses harassment against trans people of color. today, we are getting ready to launch a program that *combines* this work. for me, there has always been something missing from the Safe Bars program: it was exciting, it took off, we were on upworthy and mic.com, but in training after training of seeing few or no women of color working in the front of the house, we had to start asking ourselves: we're making bars safer...but safer for who? I wasn't seeing people who looked like me, and I wasn't seeing people who looked like Nona. We can't address harassment for women of color, especially those who are trans, if we don't talk about the ways that webare shut out of public spaces in the first place. The Safe Bar Collective is a new and improved version of Safe Bars: we're continuing to train bars and restaurants to build safe environments with an expanded curriculum that talks more about racism & hate violence; we're partnering with the Restaurant Opportunities Center of DC (ROC-DC) to equip trans people of color with front of the house restaurant job skills; we're asking our bars to create job placements for our newly trained workers, in spaces where we know they'll be safe and supported; anddddd because we know from our experience that people need ongoing support in order to be successful, we're working with ROC to make sure our participants have everything they need, from smartrip cards to hygiene kits, to *stay* employed. Already, DC's largest gay dance club and soon to be Safe Bar Collective member Town is already willing to hire from our pipeline! I am so excited about this new program and so grateful to all the amazing people who have been working tirelessly to create it. On June 8th, we're going to need your support to get it off the ground. Pledge here to give to the Safe Bar Collective for #DoMore24 and #RaisetheBar (again!) for safety in dc nightlife: bit.ly/PledgeCASS." @safespacesdc #lgbtq
Thank you for sharing this @undocumedia, we could not agree with this statement more. Here is a special shoutout to people who are multilingual and whose native languages are not English, we see you and we salute you. #immigrants #immigrantsrights #immigrantsrock
Since sexual harassment is a form of sexual and gender based violence. Via @weareultraviolet #sexualviolence #genderbasedviolence #supportsurvivors #webelieveyou
This is one reason why we need feminism, thank you @naziejoon.
This is a message from our co-founder and executive director, Amanda Draper, @lamonstruita. "Repost from @undocumedia. This real talk is so true, it's incredibly depressing, this truth angers me, while simultaneously hurting my soul. We cannot stay silent and stand by letting this injustice and state violence happen, without protest. No one deserves to be gunned down by the police without rhyme or reason, especially at the dawn of their life. And people wonder why I fear the police, they can and will gun you down without rhyme or reason, and no one will be there to hold them accountable for their extrajudicial actions. My thoughts are with Jordan Edwards' family and loved ones. There will be no peace without justice."
