Peace Over Violence's Survivor Speakers Bureau, “Voices over Violence,” is a group of individuals willing to share and discuss in an open and educational way their experiences of sexual assault, child sexual abuse, and domestic violence.  

We often gets requests from the community for survivors to speak about their experiences through presentations, panel discussions, and media interviews, to educate the public about the realities of interpersonal violence. Speakers are able to address common myths surrounding violence, resources, and the healing process.

If you are a survivor of sexual assault, domestic violence, or intimate partner stalking, and would like to share your story, you can become a volunteer for Voices Over Violence. Contact Lupe Mejia, lupe@peaceoverviolence.org.

 

Testimonials

I have found that speaking out has released an empowering spirit in me. Sharing my story continues to give me a new perspective every time I speak forth, I know I am not alone. I speak with hope that it brings about a similar comfort & empowerment to other survivors.
 

 
Not only has it allowed me to heal more each time I share my story, it has given a voice to those survivors who are unable or unwilling to come forward publicly.
