Your Voice Makes a Difference!

This September, your voice can make a difference in our shared vision of supporting survivors and eliminating sexual violence in Ohio. Join one of our Community Forums, and if you're a survivor, consider joining our "Survivor Voices of Empowerment" workshop. Together, we can end sexual violence in Ohio!


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.
