Standing up and speaking out

Speakers Bureau Main Picture

Voices and Faces Speakers Bureau Lecture Series LogoThe Voices and Faces Speakers Bureau is a national network of rape survivors and advocates who are available to speak publicly about the issue of sexual assault. Our Speakers Bureau participants are available to give presentations and talks for a variety of groups and events, including those at campuses, community centers, places of worship, law enforcement meetings and others. This groundbreaking lecture/slide program will put names and faces on the epidemic of sexual assault, bringing home the reality of sexual violence.

To help us speak out and raise awareness of rape as a civil rights and public heath issue, we have partnered with CreativeWell—one of the country's foremost lecture, literary and creative management companies. CreativeWell is committed to representing people and groups whose exemplary dedication and creative vision in their respective fields contribute to expanding the social, personal, creative and/or political horizon. With CreativeWell's help, we will be able to reach diverse communities of women and men, addressing the issue of sexual violence in political as well as personal terms.

What others are saying

"By telling her own story, and ending her own silence and shame, Dr. Pierce-Baker covered everything there is to know about what our society and culture are doing wrong in our response to rape and rape victims; ...No one in the audience even thought about leaving and no one there will forget the indelible experience."

Jody Raphael-Senior Research Fellow, Schiller DuCanto & Fleck Family Law Center, DePaul College of Law
