Survivor Leadership Series

You have a voice. You are not alone. Your stories are powerful.

The Survivor Leadership Series is an educational space for survivors of partner abuse in the LGBTQ+, BDSM, and/or polyamorous communities. Through this training, our hope is to support survivors in leading in and outside of their communities, studying and educating others about partner abuse and oppression, and understanding their boundaries with sharing their story. Leadership never looks the same; this is an opportunity to recognize the leader each survivor may already be. To continue our efforts to keep everyone safe during this pandemic, we are holding our Survivor Leadership Series via zoom. 

Application are OPEN

We are currently accepting applications! Apply now through July 10.

Choosing to create awareness around partner abuse as a survivor takes energy and support. We all have our reasons, whether it is to educate others so it cannot happen again or to create an understanding of what survivors really need. Our Survivor Leadership Series is a space to figure out how to become a leader you wish to be and make the changes that you feel are needed in your communities. 

This series involves trainings, skill development, practice spaces, opportunities to connect with folks who all share an experience of survivorship, and open spaces that can adapt to the desires of each cohort! 

The purpose of this group is to cultivate leadership among folks in the LGBTQ+, polyamorous, and/or BDSM communities. BIPOC and transgender people are especially encouraged to apply.

Applicant Requirements:

  • Be a survivor of partner abuse 
  • Be interested in learning about the connections of partner abuse and systemic oppression
