The Stories We Tell
A writing workshop for survivors of sexual violence, domestic violence and trafficking

Every survivor story has power and purpose. During "The Stories We Tell," a two-day writing workshop, survivors will read and discuss testimonial writing, reflect on how to share their own stories, and engage in a series of innovative writing exercises. With a focus on memoir, fiction, non-fiction and poetry, "The Stories We Tell" was created to support those who seek to use writing as a vehicle for personal or political change.
JANUARY 14-15, 2017
10am-5pm (Saturday) • 11am-5pm (Sunday)
on campus at the University of Chicago

The Voices & Faces Project | World Without Exploitation
We’re creating a World Without Exploitation. Watch the Voices and Faces Project-created video, and join the movement.
World Without Exploitation video
The Voices and Faces Project is proud to have joined with our allies at Coalition Against Trafficking in Women, Sanctuary for Families, and National Organization for Women/Women's Justice NOW to set the stage for the launch of World Without Exploitation, the national movement to end human trafficking and sexual exploitation. "We know that an injustice that goes unseen is an injustice that goes unchallenged," notes Anne K. Ream, a Founding Co-Chair of World Without Exploitation. "So finding creative ways to bring the stories of those who have been trafficked or exploited to the attention of policymakers, opinion shapers and the public is critical." In service to that goal, The Voices and Faces Project is leading the World Without Exploitation effort to create the nation's first large-scale archive of human trafficking and sexual exploitation survivor testimony.
