Finding Our Voices is Safely Sharing Stories

Finding Our Voices: Healing Art Activities for Survivors of Sexual Assault, held a session for survivors during the April 2010 annual art show and sale.

"Safely Sharing Stories" consists of a panel of victims of abuse who discuss aspects of telling that are supportive, such as honoring the healing process, trusting one’s intuition, and taking time to recover.

The photo is of author/advocate and FOV co-founder Lynn C. Tolson. She says that it took her 30 years to feel safe and sane enough to safely share her story. Now she encourages other to break the silence to help themselves and others recover from trauma.
