You deserve to feel safe

No matter where you are—at home, at work, at school, walking down the street at night—you deserve to feel safe.

Yet Black, Indigenous, and people of color experience higher rates of violence than other groups.

Leaving us feeling fearful for our safety ... just for existing in our own bodies.

On top of this, too often, we're made to feel small. Pushed to stay quiet. Especially in the face of violence.

Violence such as uninvited comments about our bodies, racist and sexist slurs, unwanted touch, or even physical assault.

Unfortunately, this violence can come from anyone: a partner or other family member, a co-worker, a neighbor, an acquaintance, or someone you pass on the street.

Which means to protect ourselves we have to be ready to respond in the moment.

Say no more to feeling frustrated and helpless...

...in emotionally draining conversations with people who don’t respect you.

...if someone tries to physically attack you, or other problematic situations.
