Some stories demand to be heard. A vast majority of sexual assault and domestic violence cases go unreported and unheard due to fear of the abuser and of the public’s reaction. Today, that ends.
Leah, the founder of The Sunflower Project, shared her story through her film “Untold”, and now it’s your turn.
Share your story with Leah in any way you feel comfortable: be it a written story, a video, a song, a painting or a picture. You have the option of sharing your story with the rest of the world. Submit your story with how you would like it to be shared: with your name, anonymously, or not at all. We will always respect your wishes!
There are people out there who want to hear your story. There are people out there who will be moved by your story, and will go forth to move others. There are people out there who, after hearing your story, will want to help, and will make change. Your story matters.
The point of #Demand2BHeard is to give survivors a safe way to share their stories and be listened to, and to force people to face the fact that this is extremely common and must be stopped, as well as to allow survivors to experience the intensely appreciative reactions they will receive from the world when they become brave enough to be honest. Let’s help survivors everywhere turn towards the sun, because we all know that some stories demand to be heard.
Coming out as a survivor can be one of the scariest things you will ever do, but it is also one of the most rewarding. Show the world that we are not ashamed! Your story is valuable and valid. #DEMAND2BHEARD!
