Feministing Follow Friday: SAAM, Vol. I

Twitter, Feministing style

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Of course, knowledge of the problem on its own does about zilch to stop violence — but the month provides advocates with the platform to turn to awareness into activism. Here are five doing just that:

  • Save Wįyąbi Project (@SaveWiyabi): As an advocacy group, the project aims to address violence against Indigenous women, as well as develop community based solutions in both tribal and urban areas
  • NSVRC (@NSVRC): National Sexual Violence Resource Center provides info on sexual violence
  • Victim Rights Law Center (@VictimRightsLaw): Providing free legal services to rape & sexual assault survivors in Massachusetts & Oregon. Training nationally. Leading a New Response to Sexual Violence.
  • Our Harvard Can Do Better (@OurHarvard): dismantle rape culture @harvard. better #TitleIX enforcement. Our Harvard Can Do Better.
  • PCAR (@PCARORG): The Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape works to eliminate all forms of sexual violence & advocate for the rights and needs of victims of sexual assault.

Leave SAAM twitter recommendations in the comments for next week. We’re particularly interested in local groups organizing against sexual violence. And, of course, follow @feministing.
