This fundraiser recognizes the difficulty survivors still face in coming forward during the #MeToo movement, and wishes to offer them a groundswell of support–and to celebrate their ongoing resistance.

All donations raised will contribute to a legal fund for the affected writers. For more information,, or follow the hashtag #cantsilencesupport on social media.

With thanks to Alicia Elliott for calling #CanLit what it is, and for inspiring our name: “We can’t just stand around and complain about the dumpster fire in front of us forever. Eventually we have to grab some fucking fire extinguishers and put that fire out.”
