There isn’t a more significant time to lift the courageous, intergenerational, diasporic Black voices in NO! The Rape Documentary, and love WITH accountability: Digging Up the Roots of Child Sexual Abuse anthology than now. Fall 2019 will mark both the 25th anniversary of the first pre-production meeting for the internationally acclaimed documentary film, NO!, and the forthcoming publication of the Love WITH Accountability anthology. Each of these works are groundbreaking, prevention resources that unwaveringly center diasporic Black survivors of adult rape and child sexual abuse. To commemorate the convergence of these milestones, Aishah Shahidah Simmons, the award-winning director of the film, and the editor of the anthology, is partnering with the Alice Paul Center, Just Beginnings Collaborative and Annenberg School for Communication, among others, to host #FromNO2Love:Black Feminist Centered Forum on Disrupting Sexual Violence. This gathering will lift the long-term and new survivor-led work that addresses, disrupts, and works to humanely end child sexual abuse and adult rape in marginalized communities.
