MESA backs Fairview college students
Transferring to Finish Sexual Assault (MESA) is in full help of the Fairview Excessive College college students who’re difficult rape tradition and who need to construct a tradition of consent. The phrase “boys can be boys” is an excuse used to allow and facilitate rape tradition. Rape tradition is greater than bodily sexual violence; rape tradition is a tradition the place sexist jokes are the norm, a spot the place sexual violence is allowed, unchecked, and an area the place persons are not held accountable for his or her actions.
There may be nothing manly about placing down girls or making them really feel unsafe. Masculinity is having the energy, the braveness, and the integrity to face as much as your friends, and to talk out towards misogyny, rape tradition, and sexual violence.
MESA believes survivors, and we imagine that Fairview has the aptitude to vary the tradition of their college and supply help to their college students. MESA affords nameless help is offered by means of MESA’s hotline at 303-443-7300, or by means of texting BRAVE to 20121.
The time for change is now.
Re-elect Aren Rodriguez
Longmont’s municipal election day is Nov. 2, 2021. The Boulder County Clerk and Recorder will mail ballots to registered voters starting Oct. 11. It’s now time for eligible Longmont voters to bone up on the candidates.
I’ve noticed one candidate as an incumbent council member for almost 4 years. Aren Rodriguez has impressed me since he was first elected in 2017. With out hesitation, I endorse Aren for a second four-year time period. All through his first time period, Aren has confirmed to be impartial, fair-minded, considerate and even tempered. These are invaluable attributes I wish to see in all Metropolis Council members. I steadily observe that Aren is a cautious listener and questioner of employees and consultants on vital points. He listens earlier than he speaks. He seeks to make Longmont a welcoming, inclusive place for all residents. For the previous two years, Aren has been mayor professional tem. Every time I’ve noticed him filling the mayor’s place, he has demonstrated a relaxed demeanor and handled fellow council members and the general public pretty and with the respect they deserve.
Aren has earned not solely my help, however the endorsements of the Sierra Membership of Boulder County and U.S. Congressman Joe Neguse. Let’s put a deserving, skilled metropolis councilman again in workplace. Re-elect Aren Rodriguez.
