I have set this thread for a few very clear purposes:
1. To give us a space to discuss ways and means of advocating for one another
2. To give us a space to discuss ways and means of advocating for those who continue to be victimized
3. To give us a space to discuss news and events as they surface
4. To provide safety for those who do not want to participate in these conversations
I will ask all Forum Members from now on to post in this thread all news stories or resources or ideas or requests for advocacy, change, etc. This way Members must come to this thread intentionally to see the posts that are most likely to contain triggering information.
I am sorry I did not think of this earlier...I am learning alongside you all and learning a tremendous amount from you.
Please do not hesitate to post here...and to suggest sub-threads--or start sub-threads yourself--to this discussion thread.
Peace and blessings to you all!
