Painting of a tree with foam leaves stuck to it. The foam leaves have messages of support for survivors written on them. Messages include "You are loved" and "I believe you."

The 33rd Annual Survivor Share and Speak out was November 4th. Here SAPAC's Survivor Empowerment and Ally Support (SEAS) program helped to create a supportive space where survivors where able to share their stories in an open mic format. SEAS also invited attendees to participate in a collaborative art project where they could write messages of support on leaves and place them on a tree that was displayed throughout the event. Some of the messages left include, "I believe you. I support you. You empower me." and "You're not alone."
