A rose by any other name…
The response to the harassment incident at WFC has been amazing. First off, I’d like to thank EVERYONE who has spoken up, contacted me, spread the word, or just read any one of the blog posts. EVERY bit counts.
The only problem, and it is a good problem to have, is that we have support and volunteers flowing in…and nowhere to direct them. I didn’t think there would be this much response, so I’m caught behind the game. We need to get things going while everyone is still thinking about it, still checking the hashtags.
But I don’t know what to call it. We’re going to be a grievance committee, promoting safe spaces, educating people, developing allies, raising voices. We have every shape, size, color and orientation.
I’m not sure how to label that.
Which is why I’m turning to you brilliant people! For the next week, I’ll be listening to name suggestions. I can’t promise I’ll take any, but I’m hoping there’s one in there that makes me go ‘omg perfect!’.
Things to remember:
Google it. I had a couple of ideas. One of them led me to a survivalist site. While this has interesting possibilities…
Keep it inclusive. Enough said.
If your idea happens to have a cool acronym, awesome. But, seriously, check and make sure it isn’t something that will haunt the group forever, please?
If I DO choose the name, I’ll ask for all rights to it. Eventually, I intend to get this thing incorporated and all that good stuff. Until then, I’ll be holding ALL rights, contracts and information. If you aren’t comfortable with it, please tell me ahead of time.
Final words? Ya’ll are amazing. Thank you, again.
