The mission of the Powerful Voices Project is to educate, empower, and enhance the conversation around sexual assault and its survivors. We create short films illuminating the strength and resiliency of sexual assault survivors.
Research is burgeoning throughout the fields of public health and psychology that illustrates how simply voicing our experiences about feeling shame brings tremendous relief, and paves the path for recovery. The videos and curriculum that the Powerful Voices Project has developed provide a space for people to speak, heal, listen, and be informed about the epidemic of sexual assault. The impact of sharing these stories and offering context with which to hear them ripples beyond the community of survivors. This approach offers insight to those who have experienced sexual assault, and those who have not, and ultimately increases awareness, empathy, and compassion around the issue overall.
The Project is about…
- Empowering survivors to focus on their personal stories.
- Preventing sexual abuse by raising awareness and for the first time, revealing the steps to recovery and resiliency.
- Being grounded in principles of public health and best practices.
- Our dedication to diversity and inclusiveness regarding gender, race, sexual orientation, ability, age, ethnicity, religion, geography, and class.
