SC Walkout: Support Dr. Blasey Ford
by Megan Plassmeyer on Sep 25, 2018
Dr. Christine Blasey Ford has bravely come forward and shared her story about her sexual assault at the hands of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Even though Dr. Blasey Ford has repeatedly stated her desire to testify and bravely share her story, Senate Republicans are doing everything they can to shame, bully, and force her to testify under their unacceptable, inappropriate conditions.
Yesterday, we were joined by community members, Unsweetened Magazine, Charleston Activist Network, the Hive Community Circle, I Believe Anita Hill Party, The Sister Code, SCCADVASA, and other organizers for a national walk-out to show our support for Dr. Blasey Ford, Deborah Ramirez, and all survivors.
In wearing black, we stepped out of our homes, offices, and classrooms to show that we #BelieveSurvivors. We won’t stand for despicable attempts to strong-arm a sexual assault survivor.
Thank you to everyone who participated! Below are a few pictures posted by community members. We will continue to keep you updated regarding this important issue.
