33rd Annual Survivor Share and Speak Out Recap

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."

33rd Annual SAPAC Survivor Speak Out

You are cordially invited to attend SAPAC's 33rd Annual Survivor Share and Speak Out hosted Sunday, November 4th from 6:30-9:00 pm in The League Ballroom.

The purpose of this event is to provide a supportive space for University of Michigan student survivors of sexual assault, intimate partner violence, gender-based and sexual harassment, and stalking to share their personal story and give voice to the complexities, struggles, and triumphs of healing in the wake of sexual violence. We welcome all mediums of expression including stories, reflections, poems, songs, dances, etc. Survivors of all racial, ethnic, religious, gender and social identities are welcome. All members of the campus community are invited to come listen and offer support as survivors are provided a space to use their voice to set their story free.
