Hi all! Just wanted to let you know that:
ASSERT a 10 week support group for survivors and victims of Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) will be starting at the Brooklyn Family Justice Center on June 18th. ASSERT is an acronym for A Safe Space to Explore Relationships Together. This name is representative of New York City Anti-Violence Project’s (AVP) survivor-centered empowerment approach in which we also us harm reduction techniques, meaning that no matter where they may be in their process of healing and living with the experience of IPV, we will support them.
The objective of ASSERT is to respond to and prevent violence within the LGBTQ and HIV-affected (LGBTQH) communities by educating, empowering and supporting community members to explore their experiences of IPV in a safe and supportive environment. ASSERT provides tools to recognize IPV, understand what IPV can look like and mean in the LGBTQH communities, explore the physical and emotional effects of IPV both during and after a violent relationship has ended, and to empower decision making to create healthy LGBTQH relationships. Group members will also learn additional coping mechanism, the importance of self care, and possibly develop a social support system. The current session of ASSERT is geared towards those who speak English, but we will be offering another Spanish Speaking version of ASSERT soon!
Dates: June 18th – August 20th
Time: 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm
Location: Brooklyn Family Justice Center

When I ask such persons what makes [Tim] Wise’s commentaries so unique or revolutionary, they become quiet. For in truth, there is nothing new in Wise’s analysis. If anything, it is an analysis born of the blood struggle for Black liberation and racial justice throughout American history. Our ancestors may not have used terms like “white privilege.” Instead, they just called it what it was and is: white supremacy. (Imagine a white anti-racist saying, “I’m going to use my white supremacy to help people of color.”) Nonetheless, white privilege has become the watch-word of the movement. Yet, for the most part, it has been used as a means for white anti-racists to point the finger at “those” whites or navel gaze and wallow in a guilt that doesn’t produce results. Overall, it has the tendency to takes us away from addressing the real issue head on – whiteness itself and the ideology of white supremacy that gives whiteness whatever power and meaning it currently holds.
Tim Wise wouldn’t exist but for the blood of Afrikans standing up for themselves for generations.
oh the fucking irony
Words - the evolution of pc - who is it for?
you ever thought that maybe the reason girls say they’re fine when they’re not, or they’re not mad when they are, is because the second they show any semblance of emotion they’re written off as hysterical bitches that are probably on their period?
