Voices

Voice your Truth!

The lifelong impact of childhood sexual abuse is immense and the people impacted (directly or indirectly) is countless. If you’re ready, we want to help amplify your voice.

This is a CALL OUT to all the brave souls and loved ones supporting us. You can gift us with a narrative, poem, video, illustration of your experience anonymously, under a pseudonym, or your birth name.

When you tried to paint
my body in colours of

my dark skin
hid your sins
from eyes trained
in the glow of
soft white light.‎
