What is Brave Woman?

Some acts of abuse we can see and others are hidden in wounded emotions, psychological control and isolation. Stay aware, ask questions, take action for those you love and the wellbeing of the community you live in. .

WHAT WILL THE BRAVE WOMAN COMMUNITY DO?
Collect survivor video and narrative perspectives on key issues related to domestic violence and sexual assault to encourage action and positive change.
Produce & distribute 60″ spots, wisdom films and topic-related shorts from survivors (men, women and children) as teaching tools for advocates, law enforcement, judges, and all champions to foster greater understanding and effective action.
Produce and provide a template for listening sessions where survivors share insights, challenges and ideas while family, friends, and professionals listen. Information from these sessions will contribute meaningful data.
Connect with Stories
Working with teen and adult authors, songwriters and artists, offer fiction stories and artistic interpretations of the inside life/experience of survivors (adult and children).
Work with statewide coalitions, individual shelters, government and civic groups to promote the message of understanding and courage under the Brave Woman program.
Support legislative changes as feasible that honor survivors and fund needed services.
Tools For The Journey
Brave Woman does not offer direct services, but we do create tools for individual and community change.
Coming soon, products that express the message of hope, support and change for survivors.
Survivors guide the focus of Brave Woman. Additional opportunities for voice will be created as needed.
