Silence is Violence

Silence is Violence York on Facebook

“We take an anti-carceral and pro-intersectional feminist approach to our work. We do not advocate for the further securitization of our university campuses or the further criminalization of racialized community members on our campus.

We argue that the increase of police and security presence does more harm and fails to adequately address the root causes of sexual and gendered violence in our community. We acknowledge that the material consequences of the culture of sexual/gendered violence on campuses are magnified for those living at the intersections of gender and race, class, ability, sexual identity, or any other means of marking some bodies as ‘different’.”
