Resilience was thrilled to host Standing Silent Witness 2023, our signature SAAM event, on April 28, 2023, at Daley Plaza. In a visual demonstration of the silencing of survivors, participants gather silently for one hour wearing t-shirts with stories and messages protesting sexual violence and rape culture. This powerful event includes community members, advocates, volunteers, and survivors amplifying stories that are too often ignored as a way to break the silence about sexual violence. At the end of that hour, we break the silence by chanting messages of support. Thank you to everyone who participated in and supported this event!
