Stop Violence Period

stopviolenceperiod Also happening this month: we are launching a new project! Stop Violence Period is a collective and scattered performative action(s) that seeks to stop violence against women and girls, bring awareness to the both disparate and intersectioned economies of violence, and to spring forth the hope of peace, justice and safety in the world. In doing so, we intend to transgress normative boundaries of respectability and outrage sensibilities. We will not be silent, period. Twitter: @noviolencperiod Instagram: @stopviolenceperiod Gmail: stopviolenceperiod@gmail.com In honor of Sexual Assault Awareness Month and inspired by Elonë in Germany (read her story featured in Huff Post), our first project seeks to bring awareness to the horror of sexual violence. Look for our maxi pads around town this month.
