This is a great interview with @bad_dominicana from @huffpostwomen on how #metoo is different for women and people of color.
“As defined by The United Nations: ‘Human rights are rights inherent to all human beings, regardless of race, sex, nationality, ethnicity, language, religion, or any other status. Human rights include the right to life and liberty, freedom from slavery and torture, freedom of opinion and expression, the right to work and education, and many more. Everyone is entitled to these rights, without discrimination.’ The human beings legally seeking asylum at our border are human beings. Their bones break the same way our children’s bones break. Their blood bleeds red the way ours does. Their eyes cry salty tears like ours. Every single human being deserves respect, dignity, compassion, empathy, and safety. It is very dangerous when we live in a headspace and heart-space that does not acknowledge these divine truths. I love you. I love them. Let us all love our neighbors.” @cleowade
Thank you for sharing this @endrapeoncampus
For those who wonder why survivors do not report, exhibit A. This is one of the reasons why it’s possible for people to send their testimonies confidentially and anonymously. One of co-founders when she spoke up, faced a lot of consequences not all of them positive and when doing anti-sexual sexual assault activism on campus, faced harassment and her assaulter almost everyday... If nothing else y’all support and give your money to survivors. We love you Christine Blasey Ford.
Congratulations to all of everyone who has been making history in this election. @huffpost
We love this @wiisaakodewinini and this is so true. Please vote tomorrow if you have not voted tomorrow in the USA.
We couldn’t agree more @safespacesdc
To our Brasilian sisters, we see you and we hear you. We are solidarity with you.
Para nossas irmãs Brasileiras: Nós vemos e ouvimos vôces. Estamos juntas. Obrigado @timesupnow #elenão #nothim #brasil #TIMESUP #timesup #solidarity #solidaridad #solidariedade
Stop blaming victims and survivors for being sexually assaulted and start holding perpetrators accountable for hurting others. Survivors it’s not your fault, it’s never your fault. We love you and we believe you. Thanks for sharing this @tara_wood_writer
Admittedly, neither Tanya or I had been born when Anita Hill, courageously testified against Clarence Thomas becoming a Supreme Court Justice. I always have believed Anita Hill and will always support her, and I support Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. Watching this play out from outside the U.S. has been challenging and being considered a DC resident for voting purposes is frustrating, since I cannot call my senators or representatives ask them to vote against the current SCOTUS nominee. However, #TIMESUP for victim blaming, misogyny and rape culture.
