Survivors and neighbors unite to reclaim Powderhorn community

29 Nov

So often we are posting statistics and stories about the epidemic of violence against girls and young women.  It is encouraging, then, to be able to share an example of communities taking action.  These types of community actions — for reclaiming sites of violence, for developing community-driven solutions, for taking a united stand against sexual violence, and for healing as a community — often go unreported.   And yet they are taking place in communities across the country.

We urge you to read this inspiring article about a survivor’s courage and resilience, and community action, in the Powderhorn Park community in Minneapolis.

The Facebook events page is here, if you are in the area and able to attend to support this action.
