Welcome to She is Rising, a healing community for survivors of rape, abuse and sex trafficking. I founded She is Rising because I believe in the unconditional worth of women and girls who face the trauma of violence and exploitation. I believe in their dignity, resilience, creativity and vision for the future.
As an advocate, I am deeply committed to helping those I mentor learn to value their voices, express their gifts and become leaders in their community. They are far more than the injustices they have overcome. Through retreats, workshops, individual mentoring, education, career opportunities and creative expression, survivors discover their unique strengths and learn how to cultivate the self-compassion they need to break the cycle of violence.
I invite you to join me in taking a stand for women and girls around the world, so they know they are worth fighting for.
