Survivor Speakers Bureau and Testimonials

The Speakers Bureau Training is such a supportive environment where I learned how to share my story in ways that educate others about sexual violence and inspire advocacy and action. —Sarah, survivor speaker for more than five years

Do you want to share your experience with sexual violence to inspire change? BARCC periodically hosts survivor speaker trainings for people interested in sharing their stories with media and elsewhere. Attendees become part of BARCC's Survivors Speakers Bureau (SSB).

  • Speak with the media
  • Be a part of legislative action
  • Speak with schools, colleges, and communities
  • Use your voice to create change

BARCC's Survivor Speakers Bureau is also a great opportunity to connect with other survivor speakers. Members of the SSB are available to go into the community to speak about their personal experiences with sexual violence—from the incident to the aftermath, to the road to healing. Find out more about SSB requirements, guidelines, and application! E-mail Sharon Schiffer at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) with any questions.

If you have received BARCC services and would like to share a testimonial to help us communicate the impact of our work, please e-mail .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

Every survivor experiences sexual violence differently, and every survivor can add to our understanding of the problem of sexual violence. Together we can work toward creating a world without sexual violence.
