Sharing a blogpost by Tina Minkowitz
Networking, commenting on each others’ blogs and so on, could create a public conversation that survivors are controlling and that invites others into our spaces, on our terms. It would be decentralized – which is great because anyone can start up a blog and there don’t have to be gatekeepers. We can disagree with each other as much as we want and don’t have to control dissent. But people of like minds could link to each others’ blogs, comment on them, and magnify the impact that way.
It doesn’t substitute for any other work that we have to do – getting op eds in regular media, creating other media of our own for advocacy and news purposes, etc. But blogging is a democratic endeavor in the sense that it is really open to everyone and people can develop their voices and their skills, and try out ideas. So I’ll leave us with that, as a start.
