We are proud to announce that our Executive Director, Indira Henard was named one of 19 extraordinary leaders to its 5th and final cohort of Move to End Violence, a program of the NoVo Foundation. MEV is excited to convene a multi-racial, multi-lingual, and gender-expansive cohort that centers voices historically relegated to the margins and often most targeted to collaborate on approaches to ending violence against girls, women, gender non-conforming and intersex people. They work across the intersections of domestic and sexual violence, transphobia and homophobia, state violence, reproductive injustice, and more. Based in 12 different states, they utilize a variety of approaches, including organizing, advocacy, healing justice, cultural work and direct service.

FYI - I started a fundraiser for DC RCC for my birthday, which is March 4. I hope to raise more than $200 for the Center. Thank you for all that you do to support women and men in the DMV who have been victims of assault. You are amazing!! Please give my love to all the staff who make DC RCC such an excellent and under-recognized resource in the city.
“Baby, It’s Cold Outside” REVISED to respect consent. I’m digging it!
• 157 times in 3 hr. 47 min. • More than an average 40 times an hour. • Groped without permission, approximately on average, every 90 seconds. EVERY 90 seconds! 😖

New aims in fostering consent.
TONIGHT! DC Premiere with the director in attendance US Navy Memorial - 8:30pm! ROLL RED ROLL goes behind the headlines of a notorious high school sexual assault case to witness the social media-fueled “boys will be boys” culture that let it happen, and defended them when it did. Talkback with director Nancy Schwartzman, film subjects Alexandria Goddard and Rachel Dissell, and Hanna Rosin from Invisibilia! https://doubleexposurefestival.com/films/roll-red-roll/
We are so proud to be partnering with the DC Rape Crisis Center. March for Survivors is merging with March for Black Women
FYI:
I came across this earlier. Have you heard anything about this movie? It's very upsetting.
Hey everyone, so I actually have a question for a serious topic - do you ever think hook up culture is the reason why (or part of the reason why) rape culture is still rampant? Honestly, like do you agree or disagree and why? Because I was reading this article about it, and first I went in thinking there's no real connection, but then the writer said something that changed my mind... "It is prevalent in our society that we are more eager and inclined to support sexual freedom than the protection of dignity. We will sooner turn a blind eye than stand up and fight.." Thoughts?
