Local movement’s headquarters experiences break-in, racialized harassment

On the night of Sunday, Dec. 11, the headquarters of Providence Youth Student Movement (PrYSM) was broken into and vandalized, according to a post on one group member’s Facebook. Materials had been disturbed, two knives stabbed into a table and a noose left hanging for the students to find. PrYSM is a 15-year-old organization founded in order to help Southeast Asian students form a community free of violence and work towards causes of social justice in coalition with other minority groups. The group organizes around issues like poverty, health and food access. This is apparently not the first break-in at the organization’s headquarters.
