Resources for Women of Color
The mission of the Black Sexual Abuse Survivors (BSAS) Web site is to serve as an online support group for black, adult women and men who were sexually abused as children. BSAS is a non-professional, not-for-profit resource, where its participants provide support to each other online with their recovery from sexual abuse.
The Resilient Sisterhood Project’s mission is to educate and empower women of African descent regarding common but rarely discussed diseases of the reproductive system that disproportionately affect them. We approach these diseases and associated issues through a cultural and social justice lens, because we believe that poor knowledge of reproductive health is primarily related to health, racial, and socioeconomic disparities.
At Vidcon 2015, Uplift sits down with Kat Blaque, Skittlez, and Lindsey Doe to talk about how sexual violence disproportionately impacts people of color.
