The Journey of Powerful Voices is a project created by visionary partners, Frances McCorkle and Becky Fein, that will change the discourse around people who are survivors of sexual assault related trauma. The project will fuel the shift in perception of victims and survivors of sexual assault by illustrating the stories of their paths of healing. This shift of paradigm is a step towards a more realistic understanding of the staggeringly high prevalence of sexual assault that exists, and a push to raise awareness that will bring an end to the phenomenon.
After several years of deep discussion and research around sexual assault, combined with the experience of our own healing journeys, it became clear to us how misunderstood the reality of this phenomenon is in our society. It was then that we decided to combine our skills (Frances’ study of visual journalism and Becky’s academic background of sociology and public health and a shared passion as sexual assault activists) to actuate this important discussion on a macro scale.
The stage we are currently embarking upon is the creation of a promotional video, the first interviews of our documentary.
We are seeking 2-3 people who are interested in being a part of our project as an interviewee.
If you are someone who has experienced sexual assault at any point in your life and are interested in sharing the powerful story of your healing journey, please contact us, we would love to talk with you. We will be filming in the month of August, so please contact us soon!
Please contact us also if you have any questions, words of encouragement, or constructive ideas; the success of this mission is based on expanding the discourse to make the change and we would love to hear from you too.
