“By making me feel heard, believed, and safe throughout the next 12 hours, they laid the foundation for me to pursue justice.”
What started out as a night of celebration, quickly turned into a nightmare for Amy-Lee Goodman. After returning from a night of karaoke with her friends, Amy woke up to find her roommate’s boyfriend raping her. She was taken to #NYP and @WeillCornell where she was cared for by the Victim Intervention Program (VIP).
Click the link in our bio to see how NYP’s VIP helped Amy find the strength to seek justice against her rapist. #SAAM2017

Ok guys stick with me on this post, This month is Sex Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) Not many know this about me, At the age of 8 I was sexually molested by my grandfather in September of 2014 I revealed to my parents and very close friends what had happened by October of 2015 I was in this very courthouse giving my testimony to 23 people I've never met in my life, May of 2016 I faced my abuser in this courthouse and shared the whole story with family and yet again another 12 people I have never met,My abuser in October of 2016 was found guilty, No one said it would be easy, no one said how hard it would be to have to face the very coward that did those things to me on Decemebr 31st,2005 . This post is to encourage others to stand up, bring light to the very things in this world that people are ashamed to talk about, reading all of the breaking news when this coward was indicted was so fearful to me reading comments people left who said it couldn't be true. My parents, family and close friends have continued to show support and love up to this very day. Don't be afraid to reach out to someone, this is something that is a constant struggle in my life but god has blessed me and humbled me I'm thankful for the man it's made me today, no one deserves to be left alone. Encourage others to talk about things that are rarely talked about in society, Raise Awarness. #saam2017 #saam

Sexual exploitation is rarely as obvious to spot as you would think. Take this scenario, for example. A friend tells you that her boyfriend needs some extra cash, so he tells her to go on dates with other guys. Do you just shrug it off as none of your business?

We wanna know: Who will you be in this moment?

Her role involves acting as both an on-call and follow-up nurse, as well as occasionally testifying in court. "I feel privileged to be the person to bear witness to someone's worst nightmare, to be able to validate their experience, and provide them with safe emotional safe and ways to cope so that they can begin to heal."

Part 2: Over the month of April I worked on a mural partnered with @gswellmural and #nycdycd (NYC Department of Youth and Community Development) which consisted of two 5x6ft. canvases on the topic of Sexual Assault Awareness. Our main event was a community paint day that invited participating students who submitted ideas for the mural from different schools in different boroughs. The submissions came in through a competition and with the possibility of youth having their artwork be part of the final design by myself (Leading Artist!) & 4 veteran groundswell youth.
This next addition to #sexualassaultawareness mural project focused on the emotional journey of victim to survivor. A submission by one of the youth inspired me to take into more consideration the emotional journey of a person having experienced abuse or assault and with the help of a groundswell veteran youth artist we created imagery that could show transformation, healing and growth. Which is where we end up finally with this visual about external and internal healing and transformation

The mural here highlights some work by a pair of young women artist, Rebecca Nagle and Graci Horne who held a healing tent for women only, at North Dakota. The space was for women to come and share experiences altogether especially of Sexual Assault and be able to heal together. In part of this healing, they created a quilt where patches created by survivors of sexual violence composed what they called "the monument quilt" which is depicted in this mural in the form of a teal ribbon, the symbol for Aprils Sexual Assault Awareness Month.
