In Remembering, We Rise
13th Artist Against Rape
On Friday, November 5, 2010, San Francisco Women Against Rape and California Coalition for Women Prisoners present the 13th Artists Against Rape. This dynamic event features local poets, artists and activists, speaking out against sexual assault and offers a unique supportive space for expression and community building. The event aims to help build an anti-violence movement that prioritizes survivors, people of color, people with disabilities, immigrants, low- income and incarcerated individuals, queer people, youth and others who have been marginalized or silenced. It is a night of healing and transformation through the arts.
This event promises to highlight a diverse mixture of seasoned and new performers and artists alike. Show your support of SFWAR and CCWP by attending the silent auction held before the event. All proceeds directly benefit SFWAR and CCWP mission of supporting survivors and their healing.
Please join us as we use art and celebration as tools for community resilience and personal healing. Doors open at 7pm, show begins at 8pm. Venue is wheelchair accessible and the show will be ASL translated. Please RSVP by Oct.29th for child care and/or shuttle from 19th Street Bart.

San Francisco Women Against Rape (SFWAR) is a grassroots, political rape crisis center established in 1973. We provide support to survivors of sexual assault and their friends and families and using education and community organizing as tools of prevention.
California Coalition for Women’s Prisoners (CCWP) is a social justice organization, with members inside and outside prison, that challenges the institutional violence imposed on women, transgender people, and communities of color by the prison industrial complex (PIC). We see the struggle for racial and gender justice as central to dismantling the PIC and we prioritize the leadership of the people, families, and communities most impacted in building this movement.
