The poster shows familiar faces–Oprah, Ashley Judd, Tori Amos. There are people in it I did not know were sexual abuse survivors. I was a struck by the stories I did not know as the dozens of people who were survivors who weren’t on the poster.
Each made a choice to tell their story. Each has helped me to tell ours.
Victims become survivors when someone shows them they are not alone. What happened to them has happened to others.
We need to speak out.
To save others
To break the power of silence
