On November 4th, I will participate in a Hike for Healing.....healing for survivors of rape, sexual assault, and intimate partner violence I am hiking for my own healing as a survivor of rape, as an ally and advocate for other survivors, and to gove voice that rape cukture needs to end. The organization I am working with, who is hosting the event, is called FORCE
Our hope is to raise $50,000 to sustain the work for the thousands of people who experience FORCE as part of their journey towards healing. The money raised will help fund important programming like the Monument Quilt, a 50,000 square foot quilt of survivor stories, or Gather Together, a Baltimore based collective of survivors. I have made my own piece for the quilt and look forward to the entire massive quilt to be on display at the National Mall in D.C. May 31st - June 2nd, 2019. This project, and others with FORCE, have been a sognificant part of my healing.
I am writing to ask for your support of FORCE today. You can invest in the important work of FORCE by donating here, joining the Hike, beiing on my team for the Hike, or simply spreading the word. Please also consoder making a quilt piece!
I thank you so much for your friendship and love - and I hope you share with me in amplifying survivors’ voices in healing, and to ultimately change our culture to a safer, more just, consensual world.
