The Testimony Project on Instagram @thetestimonyrprojectdc
Stand up. Speak up. Speak out.
We encourage college students everywhere to #standup to sexual violence. If you have a story you’re ready to share that you feel will help you or others to share it, #speakup. If you witness sexual violence on your campus, #speakout to work with your school to find a way to end this #rapeculture.
Sexual assault doesn’t just happen to one certain type of person; it is something that can happen to everyone. We stand in solidarity with survivors of all backgrounds. #SAAM
Last week, The Testimony Project tabled at the #RhodesCollege production of #PussyPower , providing information about the project and how people can get involved. If you missed us, look for us on campus again soon!

Happy #BlackHistoryMonth ! There are countless people and achievements to recognize and celebrate this month, and we’d like to highlight those voices you may not always hear. Chardonnay Madkins said it best in her article, “History Continues to Shape Black Survivors’ Realities” on endrapeoncampus.org, “despite the unique challenges Black survivors face, they are often underrespresented in the national conversation, which is reflective of previous social justice movements, such as the Civil Rights Movement and Women’s Liberation Movement. When Black survivors are vastly erased and replaced with narratives of heterosexual White women, we continue to perpetuate the exact oppressive systems that subject Black survivors to violence and preserve a culture of silence. Alternatively, once we acknowledge how America’s history continues to impact the Black community, we can begin to center some of these narratives and better serve all survivors”. We hear you, #WeBelieveYou , and we are here to make sure all voices and stories are able to be told and heard.
