There are hundreds of thousands of survivors of sexual violence in Ohio, eleven of whom share their stories. If you are a survivor, know that we believe you, it’s not your fault, and help is available. Allow the stories of these brave survivors to remind you that you are also brave, you are stronger than you know, and healing is possible.
