This project is one conceived by one of our writers, KaylaJo O’Lone-Hahn and Zachary Gerard Garcia. The project and online magazine’s purpose in their own words:
“Zachary Gerard Garcia and KaylaJo O’Lone-Hahn are two students with an idea. Survivor Solidarity. Both of us are survivors and strive to create a world in which no one feels the suffering that we have any longer, and to help those who face similar challenges to us. We hope to change a world that rapes, victimizes, abuses, blames, shames, and hurts the people who walk it’s streets every day. It is our goal to create a community of people who are willing to rise up for their rights as survivors and for those who are willing to stand in solidarity with us. We aim to create a safe place to share stories, thoughts, and ideas in the hope of unifying under one cause: we hope for survivors to feel pride for surviving rather than shame for being assaulted, and we hope for survivors to rise up for their rights and use this to create a better world. We have created this page as an online Zine in which submissions are more than welcome.
Submissions can be sent to email@example.com”
Red Sociology supports this project fully and hence why we are setting up a separate page for it. We urge all of our readers to check out the zine and if you so chose to contribute pieces to it. Projects like this are how we begin to break down the wall of silence that quiets too many people so please support it.
