About this Journal
The idea behind this community is a space where you can write about how you (for whatever reason) were harrassed or abused verbally or physically (either at work, home or elsewhere) because of who you were, and what you did about it. How did you cope? Were you able to reverse the situation? What happened afterwards? Did you recover, or is this an ongoing situation?

The Gender Public Advocacy Coalition is pleased to announce the release of its 2008 GENIUS Survey in partnership with Ernst & Young. GenderPAC works to ensure that classrooms, communities and workplaces are safe for everyone to learn, grow and succeed.

The Gender Equality National Index for Universities & Schools (GENIUS), GenderPAC’s most recent effort to end discrimination and promote awareness, encourages colleges and universities to recognize the benefits of a GenderSAFE campus - supportive equitable and protective for all students. Choosing to participate in GENUIS sends a strong public statement that bullying or discriminating based on the race, sex or gender of a student, faculty, or staff member is not tolerated at your institution

Fill out the survey at: www.gpac.org/GENIUS2008survey, and make sure that we have data for as many schools as possible. Your voice will help us continue to work towards a safe and welcoming environment for every student

Cross posted everywhere

Hello everyone. My name is Andrea. I am a mother to a Deaf child, sister to someone who has Cerebral Palsy and is a FIERCE disability right activist, and I myself have ADHD. I am also a Student at Antioch University Seattle in a BA completion program with a class assignment that I would love for you to be a part of. My class is centered around how individuals can use their personal stories to create social change.

For my project, I would like to gather stories of experiences of medical care from people in the disabilities community. I plan on creating a booklet or zine of related art, photography, and primarily your stories to then pass on to the University of Washington's department of disability studies ( http://depts.washington.edu/chdd/ ). It is my hope that by offering your experiences, future medical care providers will have a better understanding of their impact when working with future patients.

Because of the often sensitive nature of these stories, anonymous contributions would be more than welcome. I have set up an account for those who would like to add their stories anonymously. Please see the community for more information. Please also let me know if you have any additional ideas for the direction of this project.

This community is part of a six week project. It is my hope that well after the project itself is completed, the community will continue to be a place of support and sharing

Image Description: Banner with text that reads "A story for change. What is your story?" With the image of the disabled parking logo in yellow on black pavement with the word "Change" writen underneath. Beside the symbol is an open book with the text over it that reads "A community project for positive medical care."

Feb. 13th, 2006 @ 04:21 pm Calling for stories
Hello everybody,
This is about a subject relevant to this site.

KQED's statewide public radio program "The California Report" is putting together a series of audio portraits inspired by the film "Brokeback Mountain" and is asking for your input.

We are interested in interviewing gay men and women who moved to gay-friendly California cities or towns, from other areas of the country or other parts of California where they felt hostility because of their sexuality.

In places like San Francisco and Los Angeles, it's easy to forget that many of our neighbors are lesbians and gay men who left the towns where they grew up, went to college or lived as adults because they felt threatened or unwelcomed.

As an example, we have one story from a woman who went to college in Iowa in the late 1980s and had to put up every year with a fraternity initiation that involved bringing baseball bats into the only gay bar in town.

If you have a story to share, please call the special voicemail box set up for this project.

The phone number is 415-553-2390.

hello people, i need advice on a situation that must stop. on the last 4 years i have been suffering the influence of a boyfriend i had who "swore revenge" when we broke. he has been doing an applied effort since 2002 in making me appear in front of everyone (by telling them lies about me) as a bad person. he drove people away from me, (this was his intention as he spoke to me the last time we've seen each other). this has bothered me greatly and i have never really understood his need for vengeance. well, he got worse. this hasn't stopped. it's been four years and i'm pretty much socially isolated and i do have panic attacks and i'm doing the effort to take care of myself and defending myself from this person as best as i can but i know him and those people are unable to look at their own mistakes, or unable to stop. they have made me feel really afraid and i don't really know what to do. i know i do not deserve to have this harshness day after day and i can't understand why they do it. i don't understand how they have seen in me something bad that i'm not that they are so much "against". are they aware i am a person just like them, with rights like them? do they want to drive me crazy? i have been very, very scared to the point of feeling threatened and i am still scared and i just want to yell at them to STOP or to ask for help but i've been calling for help and people must think i'm exxagerating. i am not. please, please, please, MAKE THEM STOP. I CAN'T BEAR WITH THEM ANYMORE. PLEASE.
