“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

Take Back The Night ✨
#saam2017

It's almost the end of April and April is Sexual Assault awareness month, an awareness close to my ♥️ "No one tells you exactly how much impact it will have on your life, your future relationships and your trust. No one tells you how insecure you might become. No one tells you how much you will hate yourself, blame yourself and despise your body. And no one explains how hard it is to move on without an apology or any type of closure, but you don't need closure, you got this!
Take each day as it comes and Eventually you will smile again and you will laugh. Trust me.
You will be strong, in fact so strong no one will ever have the power to destroy you again and you will find someone who accepts you just as you are and they will understand. Turn the hatred into inner peace and do not let it define you as a person. Learn to forgive someone who will never be sorry and learn to love yourself & life again. I'm not proud of myself for much in life but I am of this. I survived. If I can do it you certainly can and if you can survive this you can survive anything"
People have a story that they will never tell anyone. This is for the women & the men that are afraid to speak up. & to the accounts tagged you do an incredible job! ♥️

Who is wearing denim today for #denimday👖? Today we wear denim to stand in solidarity with survivors of sexual assault. "The campaign was originally triggered by a ruling by the Italian Supreme Court where a rape conviction was overturned because the justices felt that since the victim was wearing tight jeans she must have helped her rapist remove her jeans, thereby implying consent. The following day, the women in the Italian Parliament came to work wearing jeans in solidarity with the victim." -denimdayinfo.org #clothesdonotdetermineconsent #SAAM2017

One of the best things about making participatory art is witnessing just how creative people can be -- including those who may not identify as artists. Recent submissions have included human hair, headphone cords, a tiny book, apple seeds, handmade feathers, real feathers, crystals, candle wax, film packaging, Bible verses, birth announcements, lichens, ribbons, yarn, and so much more. I love these beautiful, diverse, and evocative things that survivors have chosen to represent themselves -- and I'm always curious to see what will show up in my mailbox next! #curious #creative

Took part in a silent protest for rape victims. It was a powerful experience and I am proud to help break the silence #saam2017

For the 28th day of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, we are featuring Emotional Freedom Technique/EFT, which is also referred to as "tapping". EFT borrows from the Chinese Meridian System and adds cognitive therapeutic approaches in order to treat the emotional issues and the physical challenges that may result from trauma. Once integrated into the person's system through the support of a practitioner, tapping is also a useful technique for managing ongoing triggers, stressful environments, self-care and self-soothing when a person is on their own. Learning healing practices that we can "carry" with us beyond specific treatment or healing arts spaces is vital to our ongoing recovery and sustainability. As survivors, many of us are continually healing our past as our relationship to it changes with time, experiences, and the impacts of living in a rape culture, while at the same time, we may be navigating through present day challenges, harms and new physical and psychological traumas. We can develop self-care toolkits that specifically serve our unique needs, preferences and strengths and might include practices or resources that engage or anchor us in the here and now through a variety of sensory channels. It is deeply empowering to be able to intervene on one's own behalf in the midst of emotional, physical, energetic or spiritual upheaval or triggers and know a few practices or resources that can ground, nourish and move you back to your sense of center. Learn more about the providers in our network that offer #emotionalfreedomtechnique by exploring our website and searching by modality. photo: @mollyboha #30daysofholistichealing #EFT #tapping #embodiedhealing #holistichealing #embodiedjustice #saam2017 #survivor #sexualassault #acupressure #selfcare #selfhealing

Be gentle with yourself on your healing journey.

Getting my Unity Tattoo on May 18th #saam2017 #healing #gagalove

(Take back the night was so powerful that what I had to say couldn't fit on Instagram. The rest of what I wrote is on Facebook if you're interested.)
I am and always will be 100% all in with standing side by side with women on the many countless issues in society that have negatively impacted an entire gender as well as the many other victims of sexual violence from all genders. Whether you believe it or not, these are everybody's issues, and it’s on all of us, and men in particular, to start fighting back; be the bystander that intervenes in a situation that doesn’t seem right, make sure anyone you are engaging in sexual relations with is giving their full consent without being too intoxicated or being coerced, ask questions to make sure your partner is comfortable with what you’re doing, and speak up for survivors. We can create a movement that stands up to the determinants of sexual violence and makes the world a safer place for both women and everyone else who is impacted by sexual violence and other related issues.

(Swipe Left 👈🏼) Please read this. We know "not all men". We know men get raped. Here is an important issue and for some reason #CONSENT is such a difficult fucking issue to understand!

P.S. If you cannot grasp the fact that this is an analogy and try to argue stupidity in my comments, I'm blocking your stupid ass. Since it's already started!
