Feministing Follow Friday: SAAM, Vol. IV

Twitter, Feministing style
Each Friday of April, Sexual Assault Awareness Month, we’ve featured five BAMFs tweeting about their work against sexual violence. Check out our last five below the jump.

  • No Red Tape Columbia (@NoRedTapeCU): Students fighting sexual violence and rape culture at Columbia University
  • FORGE (@FORGEforward): Improving the lives of transgender and SOFFA individuals since 1994, building strong connections, providing resources, and empowering personal growth.
  • The UnSlut Project (@UnSlutProject): Read my diary. Share your own story. Working against sexual bullying and slut shaming in our schools, communities, media, and culture. Tweets by Emily Lindin.
  • Lauren Chief Elk (@ChiefElk): Co-founder of @SaveWiyabi
  • TAASA (@taasa): The Texas Association Against Sexual Assault is the statewide coalition committed to ending sexual violence in TX.

Speaking of SAAM and Twitter, make sure to check out the last #DecolonizeSAAM chat today at 8am PT. And leave #ff recommendations in the comments for next week. We’re particularly interested in local organizers tweeting about their work on the ground.
