Dear Friend,

At The Voices and Faces Project, we believe that every survivor story has power and purpose. So the artists, activists and gender-related violence survivors affiliated with our organization are using testimony to change minds, hearts and public policies on sexual violence and trafficking. We're not sharing our stories because it's healing. We're sharing our stories because it's necessary in a world that too often underestimates how often rape and sexual exploitation occur.

We've brought our survivor story-focused lecture series to 46 states and 3 continents, most recently in partnership with World Chicago and the US State Department…launched "The Stories We Tell," North America's first testimonial writing program for survivors of sexual violence and trafficking, offering full two-day scholarships to over 150 participants…joined with Barnard College and Man Up to create "In Dialogue and Community," a groundbreaking anti-rape initiative…and gave the 2015 Sexual Assault Awareness Month lecture at the Clinton Presidential Center.

The Voices and Faces Project has ambitious plans for 2015. We'll be expanding our writing workshop to reach deaf survivors of gender-related abuse…bringing our "Stories We Tell" program to incarcerated teen victims of rape and trafficking… partnering with the Women's Media Group to adapt our critically praised second book, Lived Through This: Listening to the Stories of Sexual Violence Survivors, for the stage…and continuing our groundbreaking anti-trafficking work through End Demand Illinois. But we can't meet our goals in the new year without you.
