Please support Helene and me in the Hike for Healing this Saturday!!
Join us for the hike at Lake Roland or consider donating to the Monument Quilt to support and give voice to survivors of sexual violence. We will be meeting at 1PM at the trailhead at the Falls Road Lightrail Parking Lot for an easy hike -- https://lakeroland.org/directions/
I have volunteered with the Monument Quilt in the past and have partnered with them in my work with survivors of sexual abuse and it has been some of the most powerful work of my life. Creating space for the healing power of telling your story through art is so important. In the groups I have run for children and adult survivors of sexual abuse, I have witnessed teenagers find the strength to tell their stories for the first time and grandmothers find ways to make meaning out of what happened to them as children to ensure that their grandchildren know they have a voice. No amount is too small and please spread the word about this amazing project.
