Hive Community Circle Offers Safe Space for BIack Indigenous Survivors of Color (BIPOC)

“Nothing for us, without us”, is the driving philosophy for Ashley Thomas, founder of The Hive Community Circle. Since 2015, when The Hive was founded, Thomas used this philosophy to relate her deeply personal experience as a survivor of sexual assault to assist other women and girls who have been through similar experiences. The Hive Community Circle is an advocacy group for women and girls who have survived sexual assault, intimate partner violence, and stalking in South Carolina. It focuses on culturally-specific services for the Black, indigenous, people of color (BIPOC) community.
