It’s NO MORE Week, and we’re proud to be partnering with our friends at Breakthrough to help grassroots activists make gender-based violence a year-round priority. To make that happen, we need to empower you to make a difference on your campus. So we teamed up to create this campus organizing guide because we know that great things happen when we work together.
Why now? The work of mobilizing our communities has never been so important. Rates of violence and discrimination are rising, but the new leadership in the Department of Education doesn’t see gender-based violence as an issue worth focusing on you. We disagree, of course – and that’s where you come in.
This guide is filled with resources that can help with your Sexual Assault Awareness Month activism and other activism around relationship violence, sexual assault, non-consensual photo-sharing, violence and discrimination around trans students and other forms of gender-based violence. It covers a lot because there’s a lot of work to be done, and because we wanted to give you the most comprehensive guide we could.
With the right support, everyone has the ability to create change in their community. This guide is going to be your first step in making your campus a safer place for everyone. Once you get started, reach out to Breakthrough’s Action Hotline to set up a time to chat with a member of the Breakthrough team, who will help take you from idea to action.
