The Voices and Faces Project is an award-winning non-profit and documentary project created to bring the stories of survivors of sexual violence and trafficking to the attention of the public. Recently recognized by the United States Department of Justice as “a leader in the growing movement of young pioneers who are coming forward with new ideas in the fight to end violence,” The Voices and Faces Project is working to change minds, hearts and public policies.

Eight years ago, Voices and Faces founder Anne K. Ream and documentary photographer Patricia Evans began a multi-country journey interviewing and photographing a community of sexual violence and trafficking survivors who have been "shaped, but refused to be defined, by their histories of violence." Lived Through This, Anne's memoir of that journey, is the result. V-Day founder Eve Ensler calls Lived Through This a book of "Heart-stopping, beautifully rendered stories of survivors powerfully illustrating the notion that when we tell our stories, we change the story."
Read the book's introduction on the Penguin/Random House Site.
