These women have united against violence to colored women. This is an activist organization of national level, made up of colored radical feminists. They have advanced a movement to end the violence against all women of color and violence against their communities. They do this through grassroots organizing, critical dialogues and direct actions. The name of this organization is INCITE!
INCITE! has thousands of supporters and members. It is constituted of affiliates and grassroots chapters across the US. There are several collectives that work on different projects both at state and national levels. Some of these collectives work on specific projects of political nature, such as media justice, reproductive justice and police violence. There is a national collective that works at the national and transnational platforms to try and project this organization to these levels. Still another advisory collective helps to increase the capacity of organizing at the national levels.
Whatever multiple kinds of violence that colored women experience in their daily lives, on their bodies and in their communities, is handled by INCITE! They develop political projects to address these forms of violence by working with these groups of women of color and the communities they belong to.
The group identifies different types of violence against women of color, and classifies these as combinations of violence oriented towards communities. The violence could be towards communities, such as colonialism, war, and police violence, or could be generated within communities themselves, such as domestic violence and rape.
Different affiliates and chapters work towards projects and strategies that strive to address both state as well as personal violence, taking cognizance of the ways that various oppressions affect the lives of women of color. Projects include producing radio shows involving women of color, challenging anti-violence, and several other movements for social justice. They also organize rallies against street harassment, train women of color in self-defense, organize mothers on welfare, build and run grassroots clinics, and much more.
