What we mean by healing in action
We believe that healing is a form of action, and that taking action helps us to heal. When we as survivors embark on a healing journey, we are breaking free of the hold that sexual violence has on our lives. We take back control from the harm-doers who depend on our silence. We realize the many ways in which sexual violence permeates our society, we become more likely to recognize its dynamics, and better equipped to interrupt them.
Because sexual violence is a community problem that deserves a community response, there is a role for everyone to play. We know this because in October of 2017, 19 million people said ‘me too.’, changing the way we talk about sexual violence. And that was just the beginning. Reframing the conversation challenges the systems of oppression that endanger us all. Together, we have the power to shift culture and build safer futures.
