Women's March Florida is a grassroots progressive mobilization network created by the same women who are the Women's March on Washington which brought over 1.2 million people to D.C. on 1/21/17 and 27k directly from Florida. Please join us as we continue our movement. --- Women's March Florida Community Guidelines Our community of strong, smart and independent women thinkers have achieved incredible forward strides. For centuries women, especially women in marginalized communities, trans women, black and brown women, disabled women and others have struggled, fought and won the liberties we now enjoy. The #MeToo campaign brought with it a new sense of ownership in our stories and a new sense of liberation; A collective decision that those stories will no longer define us. However, the campaign also brought backlash, people trying to intimidate us and shame us, as if we are somehow responsible for the acts committed against us. Learning that there are abusers in our midst can shatter many people's realities. But for those of us who have been abused, our realities were shattered long ago. When people try to silence survivors, to shield abusers from accountability, they are trying to protect the false reality and safety those who have experienced abuse have never been able to rely on. Given the reality that regardless of our socioeconomic status or our position in government, harassment and intimidation is still rampant in our daily lives, Women’s March Florida will take an even more direct stand against this harassment and work to abolish it from our communities. As such, we will not facilitate or allow any message that can be considered a personal assault, harassing in nature, intimidating or otherwise, on our public pages, closed groups, public groups, and all social media accounts. We exist, in part, to create safe spaces for women and femmes, and we will do so with the most unwavering commitment to the women who have put their lives on the line to push this movement forward. We believe women when they speak up against any abuse or abuser and we believe their experiences because we too have experienced them. 1. Women (all women) are not to be intimidated in or out of our group meetings, sessions events and any other place where we come together as a community. 2. Women (all women) are to be believed when they speak about their life experiences. 3. Women (all women) are to be protected in our spaces. 4. Anyone who is perceived to have harassed, intimidated, or in any way conducted themselves in a harassing or intimidating manner via any communication channel to any of our members will not be allowed to participate in Women’s March meetings, sessions, group sessions, and/or any Women’s March event. We thank you in advance for helping us create safe and productive work spaces for everyone in our community.Activity status unknown.
