Description

Survivor Love Letter: Survivor Celebration & Mural Unveiling

This is the event our 3 day series has been leading up to! The Survivor Celebration & Mural Unveiling is an opportunity for survivors of sexual assault and their loved ones to publicly celebrate their lives through live performance, speak out, and an extraordinary Keynote by filmaker and activist, Tani Ikeda.

Survivor Love Letter is a movement for survivors of sexual assault and their loved ones to publicly celebrate their lives. It was started by filmmaker and activist, Tani Ikeda in 2012 on the anniversary of her sexual assault where she penned a letter to her younger self that ended with the words: "this is my survivor love letter."

Since then, #SurvivorLoveLetter has rippled out and become a hashtag, a letter writing campaign, a national mural project, and a viral social movement. These letters have immersed thousands of survivors with the message that they are not alone.
