Conversation Begets Action, Action Begets Change
Resistance through discourse. Empowering through informing.
If you wish to be silent, you’ve come to the wrong place. If you wish to be still, you’ve come to the wrong place.
In order for one to enact change, one has to care. In order for one to care, one must first understand. Yet, to understand we must listen. Listen to those who are different than us, and listen to their needs. Listen when they tell us how we can be an ally.
To listen does not mean to be silent. To listen does not mean to be still. To listen is to be humbled.
When we listen, we learn. When we learn, we can make a difference.
Thus, starting the conversation is only half the battle. Including as many voices in the conversation is imperative. And, actively fighting for each other is how we can begin to make change.
This is why The Shrew has supported various causes through fundraising campaigns.
Check out these amazing organizations below, and offer your support in anyway you can. And, remember, support can come in many forms: donations, spreading the message, and even taking the time to learn more.
So, it’s time we all did our Shrew part.
The Trevor Project
The Trevor Project is standing in the gap, as LGBTQ youth are at heightened risks and vulnerabilities due to identity-based oppression. With 24-hour crisis line support, a chat line, and online resources, The Trevor Project is working hard to support LGBTQ youth.
Now it’s our turn to step up and help too.
Free The Period
Period poverty is not something that we often think about. But, it’s very real and closer to home than you’d think. According to Free The Period’s research, 46% of low-income women had to choose between a meal and period products. Basic hygiene should not be considered a luxury.
Help bridge the gap, and donate today.
