Help continue the healing by sharing your story
There are numerous opportunities for Finding Our Voices survivors and allies to share our stories with others. It can be as simple as sharing an FOV trifold pamphlet, listening to a survivor’s story without judgment or attending an art workshop to witness the healing power of expressive arts and in a compassionate community.
If you are willing to speak to a group on behalf of Finding Our Voices, we can help prepare you. Consider our Legacy Series of classes beginning with Your Voice, Your Choice. Attend a speaking engagement with Joyce Aubrey as she shares the process paintings that were key to her recovery. Take advantage of speakers and their experience in passing on the message that everyone deserves a safe environment, has the right to thrive and Post-Traumatic Growth is possible.
Inquire about preparation and consideration as a speaker.
“Share your story with those who’ve earned the right to hear it and share your story with those who can bear its weight.”
