Our founder, Jeni Ambrose, has been working hard to get the word out about MapYourVoice in hopes of helping victims of sexual violence speak out and take steps towards healing.
What was so significant about the ESPY awards this year?
The honoring of over 100 individuals who were subject to the abuse of Larry Nassar, the disgraced doctor of the USA gymnastics team. Nassar was sentenced to 40 to 175 years in prison last year, after over 150 women spoke out against him between two different court cases.
Even with the best of intentions, supporting a sexual violence survivor in a way that actually lends support and doesn't create further harm is not so obvious. While it's important to be there for a survivor when they need you, it is also important to have some understanding of and be sensitive to the unique situation and set of challenges a survivor faces. We created this "10 Ways to Support Survivors" infographic to help you understand the best ways you can support a friend, family member, or anyone who reaches out for support.
