New Blog!: In Community & In Resistance
This blog will serve as a community and safe space for womyn, trans and intersex people of color who have experienced sexual violence. Womyn of color are isolated and marginalized in spaces that are supposed to be for healing, safety, and justice. We understand sexual violence not only as a manifestation of interpersonal violence but also made possible through colonialism. Womyn of color are targeted by the state and individuals because of our gender representation, sexual orientation, disability, family background, housing status, and racial identity, etc. We reject spaces that do not take into account intersectionality and we want to empower survivors to follow the path that is best for them.
What This Blog Will Include:
- In the National Violence Against Women Survey, 18.8% of Black women had been raped in their lifetime.
- Approximately 7.9% of Latinas will be raped by a spouse, boyfriend or ex-boyfriend during their lifetime.
- 92% of American Indian girls who have had sexual intercourse reported having been forced against their will to have sex.
- In a survey of 403 transgender people, 78% reported having been verbally harassed and 48% reported having been victims of assault, including assault with a weapon, sexual assault or rape.
(Note: THIS IS A NO ALLIES SPACE!)
- Information on self-care
- Writings on the experiences of WoC survivors
- Reviews of anti-sexual violence organizations
- Healing exercises
- Healing through Art exercises
- …and more!

What has been your experience dealing with the effects of sexual violence as a womyn of color? What methods do you use for self-care? Does art help you heal? Do you just want to rant?
