About The Project
Dear Survivor is a multifaceted project designed to build community, support and resources for survivors of sexual violence and their allies. This platform hosts a growing audio-visual collection empowering sexual trauma survivors through the expression of their own narratives. These stories seek to highlight survivor experiences, illustrate the prevalence of sexual violence, and question how we can break this cycle.
Conversations in society are happening, but not much has changed. For example, an American is sexually assaulted every 68 seconds. And yet, survivors carry the heavy, painful burden of demanding action and engagement from their family, friends, and community.
This online platform will have spaces for both survivors and allies to share their own stories and find resources. The goal of this project is to create a safe space that fosters community and support.
