Share Your Story
As part of our #IAmAVoice4Victims campaign, we are collecting stories from survivors of abuse that will inspire and educate others about the realities of domestic violence and sexual assault. It is our hope that survivors will find strength and healing by sharing their story. We also encourage family and friends of victims and survivors to share their experiences as well. Sharing your story could save lives and bring hope to individuals struggling with the effects of abuse.
* Sharing your story is up to you. If you would like to share with others how domestic violence or sexual assault has affected you, please complete the form below to submit your story.
* Write the story from your point of view (first person).
* Submit your stories anonymously or with your first name and age only.
* We will not change any of the content of your story, but we may remove names or language that may not be appropriate for all ages.
