ANBU is stoked about producing this project in our Tamil community. Please share this with all your family and friends and be a part of this movement. Silence perpetuates childhood sexual abuse so let’s choose to raise our voice and never stop until it stops!

Seeking Tamil folks of all genders, ages, and body types. No acting experience required.

Please call or email us with your information so we can connect and create!

ANBU is very excited to tell you about a project that an amazing womxn on our team is taking on to gather, develop and create a book with a focus on healing from childhood sexual abuse within the Tamil community. This is a project that Jessica Thyriar has been thinking about for awhile now and sees it coming into fruition this year.

This book will aim to exemplify the enormous growth potential of pain. The details of the suffering itself is not required, rather the heart and core of this project is to illuminate the beauty that is possible once people acknowledge, accept, and work through the suffering. Jessica has a vision in mind for this project already. The book will be a compilation of short stories. Each chapter representing a different individual/narrative. Beginning the chapter with a profile of yourself (the survivor) to create an image in the readers minds eye (ex. age, where you were raised, hobby..) and this can be non-fiction/fiction. Then pick any survival/coping theme and write your heart out!

To top this wonder up, she has graciously offered to donate the proceeds to ANBU to help with programming and all other projects aimed to eliminate childhood sexual abuse in our community.

If you have any questions or have a story you are ready to share anonymously, under a pseudonym, or your name – please email your short story to thyriarj@gmail.com by September 30, 2016.
