INCITE! Women of Color Against Violence is "a national activist organization of radical feminists of color advancing a movement to end violence against women of color and our communities through direct action, critical dialogue and grassroots organizing." INCITE! is fierce. INCITE! is powerful. They've created books and posters, launched campaigns and provided resources for organizers, as well as so much more to create a world where women of color can live in peace.
Now, anyone who wants to help end violence against women of color and our communities has another resource in the INCITE! blog. Blog editors post news articles, events announcements, calls for submission and more. And they don't claim to have all the answers - instead, they're hoping to hear from you and me and anyone else with news to share.
The latest post on the INCITE! blog, as I mentioned, features a fantastic event that's happening in San Francisco this weekend. Sins Invalid is "a performance project that incubates and celebrates artists with disabilities, centralizing artists of color and queer and gender-variant artists as communities who have been historically marginalized." And it's just as amazing as it sounds. Learn more about Sins Invalid on the INCITE! blog or at the Sins Invalid site, which includes an interview with the fabulous Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha, who will also be a part of next weekend's Safetyfest.
There are powerful events happening everywhere, for folks who are used to feeling marginalized. No more. Big thanks to INCITE! for bringing our struggles and triumphs into conversation, and calling for action.
