@michelle-barboza @taorminalepore Do we really need SVP’s (or anyone’s) approval to start bias watch group? I mean, I think SVP is great and has come along way, but from what I have seen the entity is also very slow to act and plays politically when it comes to things like this. All understandable, I know how to play the game, but I highly doubt that the idea of creating a group like this that might be troublesome for the society might not be something they want to jump on.

I say let’s just get like minded individuals together and form this! We, as the ones who fell the effects of bias and inequality, should be the ones telling the society when its happening and be able to call the perpetrators out on it. I’m not saying let’s be antagonistic, but we definitely can do a lot by making people aware of such situations.
