This is a call to form a sexual violence suuport and ACTION network of women in Portland. This network of women would come up with constructive ways to deal and take ACTION against sexual violence within our community. Not only would we support survivors, but we would also make demands of the men we work with in the activist community.
Some ideas so far:
*to set up a hotline
*be public about men who have hurt women
*be a strong presence at places where women repeatedly feel uncomfortable(such as shows)
*give women more tools to be vocal
*support women in whatever way they ask
*work with men on radical ACTION they can take to help us stop the repetition of sexism and sexual violence.
There will be a meeting for any women who wish to be involved on Thursday
May 8 at 7p.m. at 5115 NE 24th(1/2 block off Alberta)
