New Project Idea

When I started this project in 2004 in San Francisco, CA my goal was to empower Survivors, to give them back the voice that was once lost or was not heard. I started by meeting and photographing women in SF and the Bay Area. I also met with women in San Jose and Santa Cruz who opened their hearts and shared their stories with me. As I wanted to expand the project it was difficult to find a way to meet to them in person to photograph them to help share their stories.

With the prevalence of social media now I have been thinking of a way to open up the project world wide with it being easily accessible for participation.

My goal is to have a photo of each survivor with the caption "I'm a Survivor". They can also share their story and Regain their Voice.

Below is a sample:
Please help spread the word, participate, share, help bring awareness to sexual assault. For survivors to heal and to help with prevention. You can be apart of something big! #regainyourvoice
