Survivor Story Speak-Out

NOW ACCEPTING SUBMISSIONS! Each year, in honor of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, we aim to create space for survivors of sexual violence to share their stories. In lieu of a microphone on a stage during our annual Take Back the Night event, this year we’re creating a virtual “stage” or platform for survivors to share their stories in a written format.

The deadline to submit for submissions is Friday, April 23rd. For more information, FAQs, and to reach the form, please visit our Survivor Story Speak-Out page.
