#GIVINGTUESDAY-#UrStoryMatters

As a global movement, #GivingTuesday unites countries around the world by sharing our capacity to care for and empower one another.

Help us in our mission to empower survivors of abuse.

Do you have a story of overcoming abuse in your life? Do you know your story will empower others to come forward and share.

You can remain anonymous or you can share with a video. It’s up to you. Whatever you decide, we will honor it.

It is important that your voice is heard.

Through our programs of writing, painting, collaging, music and other mindful practices, we are able to help women find their voices. We then can share those stories through interpretive dance, spoken word, music, wearable art and film.

Use #UrStoryMatters on Twitter @FW_Project and FB and let us know you want to share your story with us.

Email us at info@forgottenwomenproject.org as well with any questions.
