Share Your Story

Survivors often disclose how isolating and stigmatizing the experience of sexual violence can be, which is why so many survivors decide to remain silent about their assaults. When survivors suffer in silence, healing and closure are practically unattainable. Through the sharing of stories, survivors can learn that they are not alone. There is strength in numbers, and the more survivors speak out about the violence that was committed against them, the more the walls of shame and stigma surrounding survivors will begin to disintegrate.

Click on the videos below to view a few survivor stories we collected during our survivor storytelling workshops, called Truth Out Loud. You can also submit your own story to us; this can be submitted anonymously, or with your given name. We will only share your story with your explicit permission.
