building strength in community
Survivor Strong provides educational opportunities for the community and access to holistic healing and support for survivors of gender-based violence.
Our Stronger Together workshops teach boundaries, communication, and self care skills. We want to give students tools for successful, healthy relationships and self empowerment. Survivor Strong knows that a safer, healthier world is possible if we learn together, heal together, and work together, as a community, to end violence and abuse.
LEARNing from Survivors
While everyone’s map for healing after trauma is different, there are steps that we as allies and community members can take to help a victim through the aftermath of abuse or assault, especially within the legal profession.
LEARNing from Survivors is a trauma-informed approach to the prosecutorial process. This step-by-step training will help aid victims through their cases. Survivor Strong knows that a trauma-informed prosecutorial practice can be a catalyst for a victim’s journey toward healing.
Bodies and Boundaries
In 2020, Survivor Strong will offer more educational opportunities for our younger community members.
Bodies and Boundaries is Survivor Strong’s story hour for children aged 4-11. During this workshop, a Survivor Strong advocate reads age appropriate children’s books that center on bodily autonomy while speaking about consent, personal space, and safety networks. These conversations serve as vital launching pads for important conversations between parents and their children while introducing boundaries and body safety to the community.
