As part of The Network/La Red’s campaign Survival and Resistance: Power with Survivors, Power for Communities, came our first event — Wild Tongues: Stories for Ourselves. This event reclaimed power by highlighting the experiences of survivors of partner abuse and/or oppression with poetry, music, photographs, art, and choreography. We asked for survivors of partner abuse and oppression to submit their art and share their experience among a community full of support. By popular demand, we will be making Wild Tongues an annual event that we incorporate into all future campaigns. Check out some photos from the event here and if you are interested in participating in the campaign in other ways, please contact mobilize [at] tnlr [dot] org.
