Description

Survivor Love Letter 3 Day Workshop Series

Workshop #1: The Survivor-Centered Storytelling Workshop is an opportunity for survivors of sexual assault and their loved ones to write their own #SurvivorLoveLetter, and engage in healing through survivor-centered storytelling.

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.
