The anticipated publication of the Love With Accountability: Digging Up the Roots of Child Sexual Abuse will occur near the time of the 30th anniversary of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, and the 25th anniversary of the first pre-production meeting for NO! The Rape Documentary. The documentary film and the anthology are each groundbreaking, prevention resources that unwaveringly center Black survivors of adult rape and child sexual abuse. Each of these works focus on a population that is both historically and contemporarily marginalized and disenfranchised in the U.S. To commemorate the convergence of these milestones, Aishah Shahidah Simmons is partnering with the University of Pennsylvania to host a national conference titled, From NO! The Rape Documentary to LoveWITHAccountability: Building on a Movement (#FromNO2Love) in Fall 2019. #FromNO2Love will be a rigorous, intergenerational, multiracial conference and gathering that will both celebrate these milestones while lifting the long-term, and new survivor-led work that addresses, disrupts, and works to end child sexual abuse and adult rape.
