What is Survivor Speaks Out? Survivor Speaks Out is a platform that was created for survivors by survivors. God gave me an idea in Fall of 2017 to start a movement that will allow survivors of sexual assault to come together and share our stories. I was given the name Survivor Speaks Out and that was enough for me, however; God had much more in store for this movement. I immediately thought that I would have put my creative spin on the name with poetry, a stage, and to create a space that offered victims the opportunity to release. Well, fast forward a few months afterwards, myself and my Survivor-Sisters formed what we call SWV(Sisters With Vision). God knew that I could not do this alone, therefore He sent me to the people who could help get His job done.
We Are SWV
Survivor Speaks Out is a collaborative effort of three survivors of sexual assualt who have the heart and passion to serve other survivors. Myself, Rosalind Alford, and Lavinia Masters decided to come together in Fall of 2017 to provide a platform that will educate and celebrate victims of sexual assault. As the each of us work individually as well as corporately, our hearts to serve our fellow survivors have not changed. Be on the lookout for Survivor Speaks Out as it continues to grow to reach others who are on their healing journey.
