We are a growing coalition of survivors committed to addressing the toxic mythology around intimate violation, gender violence and sexual harm, by centering the wisdom of survivors in redefining our collective approaches to healing and justice.

We envision a world that acknowledges, validates and repairs the impacts of intimate violence through innovative, humanistic approaches that reduce harm, rehabilitate and heal.

We recognize that socialization into the mythology of patriarchal violence is one of the greatest barriers to survivor defined healing and justice. So we work to flip the script, holding space for healing connection and radical reimagining, direct from the survivors who have hard earned their wisdom.

this year we seek funding to expand and continue our efforts for the coming 5 years

research + policy

In imagining new futures of justice and healing, survivors serve as co-researchers. We utilize participatory action design research and other methodologies to carry out groundbreaking, survivor-centered research that includes underrepresented populations and asks critical, often overlooked questions. Our peer-reviewed findings contribute to the pool of evidence on which we can base a new landscape of community-based services and policies for healing and justice that is both inclusive and responsive to the needs of all survivors.

amplication + EDUCATION

We design an education and media strategy that both amplifies and informs, leading the conversation away from harmful mythology, while arming the public with a deeper understanding of intimate harm and its impact. Our creative team captures survivor wisdom and uses data visualization to produce dynamic short form educational content around trauma science and how-we-got-here histories. These truth-telling graphic,  video campaigns, workshops and trainings explore, explain, and dismantle the science and social paradigms behind trauma and our culture of response.

community conversation

We facilitate survivor-centered community conversations that cultivate connection and foster learning. Our transformative Consentric Circle conversations bring together survivors, community and family members, decision makers, first responders, and in some cases, those who committed harm. Scaffolded with learning resources, these vulnerable, deep group learning discussions explore the impacts of trauma, identify patterns between our survival experiences, challenge the myths and misunderstandings we’ve encountered, and reimagine the course of our healing with creative systemic interventions. Addressing where the system does not meet survivor needs allows us to foster survivor imagination and systemic change and increase community accountability as we collaboratively reimagine what healing and justice look like for those who are impacted.
