A hallmark of abuse is silencing the victim. Victims of all sorts of abuse commonly feel that their voice is one of the most powerful things taken from them, that they were either silenced or discredited during their abuse. It is a topic that comes up again and again in discussing domestic or child abuse, the feeling of hopelessness that comes with the inability to speak out against the abuser.
The No Longer Silenced Movement changes that for the teens and young adults they serve. Giving survivors of child abuse a resource where their voices can be heard and their futures brightened. Providing them with information on how to thrive after abuse, this movement encourages young survivors of child abuse to attend college or trade schools, learn to care for themselves, manage stress, and cope with their feelings.
