Today is the day.
The time is now.
This is where we come together united, linking arms and declaring “enough is enough.”
We’ve had it. We aren’t going to take it anymore.
Enough fear. Enough re-traumatization. Enough complacency. Enough disinterest in trauma-informedness. Enough victim-blaming and looking the other way while abusers continue to rise and survivors continue to climb the mountain of healing and recovery with bloody knuckles and bruised knees while the world around them sends accolades to the very people who threw them off of a cliff.
“Be Their Voice” is composed of a small group of survivors. We have experienced a variety of traumas including childhood abuse, neglect and commercial sexual exploitation of a child, stranger, aquaintence and military r@p3, as well as religious and social trauma related to the responses of those around us regarding our traumatic experiences. We have bachelor’s and some master’s level education regarding psychology and counseling, but we are not counselors, therapists or doctors. We are survivors. The information that we share here is readily available to anyone interested in learning more about trauma, healing and support.
If you are a survivor, you are welcome here.
If you love a survivor, thank you for being here.
If you are conservative, you are welcome here.
If you are liberal, you are welcome here.
If you fall somewhere in between, we appreciate your ability to see nuance. Thanks for being here.
If you are a traditionalist, thank you for being here.
If you are an advocate for change, we appreciate that you are here.
If you are straight, gay or somewhere in between, we are so glad you are here.
If you are deeply committed to your faith, please keep this movement in your prayers.
If you are deeply committed to your lack of faith, we appreciate you. We’re glad you are here.
If you don’t really know where you stand, we’re really grateful that you are choosing to stand with survivors and we are honored to lock arms with you.
“Be Their Voice” is committed to advocacy, education and empowerment. Thank you for joining us. We look forward to this journey of loving stronger and living loudly.
