Through the 10th International Anti-Street Harassment Week organized by Stop Street Harassment final week, I printed my weblog highlighting the vital position of group care and accountability to sort out road harassment throughout COVID-19. As somebody who has been on this anti-gender violence motion for some time, I used to be excited to proceed this dialog and significant dialogue with my colleagues.
California Coalition In opposition to Sexual Assault is dedicated to stopping and ending all types of gender violence, social injustice, inequities, and oppression that intersect race, gender, sexual orientation, financial standing and so forth.
So, throughout our workers assembly earlier this week”, I initiated our examine in dialogue with the query “If Road Harassment Didn’t Exist….”
I’ve been deeply moved and impressed by my colleagues’ highly effective and hard-hitting responses shared beneath. Their imaginative and prescient of how our world will appear like with out road harassment mirrored a way of braveness, vulnerability and resilience. Road harassment performs an enormous disagreeable position in our lives and sadly, is .
Photographs and phrases have a strong influence on us as audiences when it comes to influencing our perceptions, attitudes, data of, and reactions to social points. Therefore, our staff creatively shared their imaginative and prescient utilizing selfies, images or movies.
As our workers member, Marsela Rojas- Salas superbly articulated,
“If road harassment didn’t exist, then individuals of coloration, ladies of coloration, and trans and non-binary individuals of coloration might exist in peace. We might all stroll, run, skate, roll, and transfer by means of the streets freely and unapologetically.”
“I’d be capable to benefit from the freedom to put on shorts, hearken to music, and luxuriate in a pleasant run at my native path with out fear or concern.” -Claudia Sibaja
I wish to take this chance to induce our rape disaster facilities, companion organizations, and our beloved group to mirror on this query and assess your imaginative and prescient. The truth is, we might broaden this query “if road harassment didn’t exist…” to “What would our world appear like free of harassment, oppression and violence?”
