Send us your story of resilience!
As a survivor of child sexual abuse I realized that so many of us think we are alone, that we are the only ones who have ever been sexually abused Nothing could be further from the truth – we think we are alone because very few people are able to talk about what happened to them as a child. However, we must stop the silence, because the people who molested us have not necessarily stopped molesting others. I proudly share my experiences and am committed to speaking out about the realities of Child Sexual Abuse, in the hopes that others will recognize how critical it is that we, as a community, let our voices be heard. Please consider joining me in finding your voice. Through poetry, art, music, or any other outlet you choose, we want to give you a place where you can tell your truth and let others hear your story. Once we break our silence, other will know finally that they are not alone, and you will find that you are able to let go of any shame, guilt, or any stigma society has placed on us. It is time to lay your burden down, because it was never yours to carry So please send us a video or a link to a video of you breaking your silence so we can share it with the world and put people who sexually molest children on alert that we are no longer giving them the protection of our silence. Through art, expressions of your journey, or however you choose to find your voice, NOOW wants our website to be a vehicle allowing us to go from victims to victors. This is one of the many ways we hope to achieve this. Your video will be posted here on this page and on our YouTube channel (with your consent) and it will be a cornerstone in helping inspire others to speak out and help spark the end of child sexual abuse all together.
