Our commitments will ensure that children are safe from sexual violence in the home, survivors and families feel supported in healing, and people who harm are unable to reoffend through survivor-centered transformative justice practices.

"I’m fortunate to have found the amazing writer and activist, Josephine A. Lauren, as my developmental editor. They, like me, is an incest survivor with a distinctive voice, generous spirit, and intersectional approach.
Their somatic approach encouraged me to be braver, motivated by their courageous willingness to rock the boat and publicly name incest as a pervasive, often invisible scourge that continues to affect children, families, and society."




Survivor, Writer,  & Anti-Racism/Anti-Incest Activist
