Tongue Tied is a one day retreat/discussion for young East African women to dissect and examine theway in which rape culture manifests itself in our communities. Through sharing personal narratives, participants will strategize towards dismantling the language and patterns of behavior that make rape culture so entrenched in our communities.
Speakers will utilize storytelling and poetry to share their experiences of rape culture to examine the ways in which victims are silenced and abusers are shielded from responsibility and prosecution.

The retreat will also involve discussions surrounding various stake holders in the social service and criminal justice systems. This will enable young women to better navigate resources available to them and to assess the ways in which their inter sectional identities as racial, ethnic and religious minorities as well as queer, trans and immigrant youth impacts their ability to access supports. The stories and knowledge generated from the retreat will be shared with various organizations serving survivors of sexual violence/abuse, to enable them to better understand the nuanced nature of barriers faced by East African women when confronting violence in our lives.

The project will also provide participants with resources towards accessing help from various channels.
