Unbreakable

 

“The mission of Project Unbreakable is to increase awareness of the issues surrounding sexual assault and encourage the act of healing through art. Since the project’s conception in October 2011, it has featured over two thousand images of sexual assault survivors holding posters with quotes from their attackers.”

Knowing firsthand that breaking the silence of secrets is a tremendously important part of healing, I wholeheartedly applaud this wonderful project. While I abhor the fact that such projects are needed, I am in awe of those who share and those who provide these places. I hope to one day be able to do such helping work.

Much like the stories presented on Violence Unsilenced, these images destroy me and break my heart, but yet are so often so filled with hope. I encourage you to browse through the images submitted by these incredibly strong and courageous people.
