In 2000, over TK activists convened in Santa Cruz, California. They were drawn together from diverse communities by one unifying mission: to end the war being waged on women of color in the US and around the world. There INCITE! Women of Color Against Violence was born. Already the largest multiracial, grassroots feminist organization in the US, INCITE! boasts TK members and chapters in TK cities, including New York, Detroit, Boston, Chicago, New Orleans, San Francisco, and Seattle. Color of Violence presents the fierce and vital writing of 24 of these visionary women-including well-known scholars and activists Kimberle Crenshaw, Haunani-Kay Trask, Dorothy Roberts, Elizabeth Martinez, and Margo Okazawa-Rey. Drawing astute connections between different forms of interpersonal violence and violence perpetrated by police, prisons, and the military, the contributors both expand the definition of violence against women- shifting the focus from domestic violence and sexual assault-and place women of color at the center. For example, Loretta Ross reveals how immigration laws and border policing compound violence against migrating women and Patricia Allard explores how the state inflicts violence through legislating poverty. Unlike most existing examinations of violence against women that treat women as "victims," Color of Violence highlights the groundbreaking work of survivors and activists in creating strategies to counter violence. The authors map innovative strategies of movement building and resistance used by women of color around the world. At a time of heightened state surveillance and repression of people of color, the INCITE! Anthology is an essential intervention.
