Ending campus sexual assault and holding institutions accountable shouldn't be on the backs of survivors. Everyday activism is the radical notion that everyone can play a part in ending violence and oppression by resisting rape culture, supporting survivors, and challenging our institutions. Believing survivors is a type of radical everyday activism, since we live in a society that suggests that you do completely the opposite.
Activism takes many forms. For some of us, activism means supporting a friend and survivor, for others engaging in political reform, for others it is getting out of bed in the morning -- as surviving itself can be an act of activism, healing, and solidarity.
