In March 2017, we partnered with our friends at NO MORE to bring you this campus organizing guide. Breakthrough and NO MORE are working together to help grassroots activists make gender-based violence a year-round priority. To make that happen, we want to empower you to make a difference on your campus.
The work of mobilizing our communities has never been so important. Rates of violence and discrimination are rising, but the new leadership in the Department of Education doesn’t see gender-based violence as an issue worth focusing on you. We disagree, of course – and that’s where you come in.
This guide is filled with resources that can help with your Sexual Assault Awareness Month activism and other activism around relationship violence, sexual assault, non-consensual photo-sharing, violence and discrimination around trans students and other forms of gender-based violence. It covers a lot because there’s a lot of work to be done, and because we wanted to give you the most comprehensive guide we could.
With the right support, everyone has the ability to create change in their community. This guide is going to be your first step in making your campus a safer place for everyone.
We can’t wait to see all the amazing things you’ll do with this campus organizing guide in hand!
