Consentric circles are about connection, validation and innovation. Our conversation series bring together survivors, allies, and supportive community members for a round table voluntary discussion around sexual violence. We explore the simple, often overlooked questions about our experiences surviving trauma, while defining what support and justice look like for each unique survivor. We believe that because the survivor is at the center of the harm, they should be centered at its resolution. We recognize that all people are capable of harm and of healing, and that we are all responsible to create a culture of support for survivors and accountability for those who have harmed.
Healing ourselves and our communities from intimate violence requires authentic and vulnerable conversation and understanding. When our community bears witness to our pain, we experience healing validation, and our community experiences transformative understanding. When we address where the system failed us, we can collectively reimagine and build new systems that do better by survivors and their communities.
Healing happens in the presence of others.
