“This is about supporting all survivors -- supporting us -- in our search for justice. It’s about using our voices to break down all the barriers that hold us back. It’s about reclaiming our power.” (#TIMESUP x @nowthisnews)
Day 31: We’re wrapping up 31 days of commemorating the strength and power of survivors with these words from @MiraSorvino at the #TIMESUP#NYSafetyAgenda bill signing: "You are not less than. You are not dirty or damaged goods. You are not without recourse or support or credibility. You are not without hope. And perhaps most importantly you are NOT alone. We are here for you.” (📷 by @dev.king)
In the fall of 2017, revelations of widespread abuse at the hands of the powerful sparked a global reckoning. By seeking justice -- & for some, by sharing their stories -- survivors are redefining our culture & writing history. Every day in October, we’re sharing the words & stories of people whose bravery made this new era possible.
