Survivor Engagement Committee

During or after receiving services, many survivors express an interest in wanting to stay involved with Resilience in some way. 

If you want to continue to experience a sense of having a community where you are understood and supported, want to “pay it forward” by helping other survivors, or you just want to add your voice to the fight to end sexual violence in big or small, private or public ways, Survivor Engagement Committee (SEC) might be for you.

SEC seeks to engage survivors of sexual violence in being active agents of change against rape culture. We connect survivors with activism and storytelling opportunities and provide support for empowered decision making about those options. We recognize the importance of centering survivors’ voices in the cultural narrative about sexual violence as well as the healing power of survivors reclaiming their own narratives.

Below is a list of opportunities you can sign up to be a part of:

  • Media Interviews (news, radio, survivor testimonies)
  • Public speaking at awareness and fundraising events
  • Help organize fundraising events
  • Help organize and/or be a part of Awareness events
  • Help organize and/or be a part of Art Activism events
  • Public Policy work ( canvassing, lobbying)
  • Other

You do not have to be a current or former Resilience client to participate. Survivor Engagement Committee is open to all survivors. If you would like to join Survivor Engagement Committee or if you have questions, please contact LaShanda Nalls at lnalls@ourresilience.org.
