Thank you for your interest in DARCC Collectives!
The term "collective" refers to a group of individuals who come together with a shared purpose. It involves people collaborating, pooling their resources, and working collectively towards a common objective. It often implies a sense of shared responsibility, decision-making, and a desire for mutual benefit or advancement. The collective structure often promotes equality, participation, and consensus-based decision-making, with each member having an equal voice and influence within the group.
The concept of a collective emphasizes the power of collective action, cooperation, and solidarity among individuals to bring about social change.
Join one of the DARCC collectives today. Together, we can amplify our efforts to create a world free from sexual violence.
