Survivor Leadership Series

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

The Survivor Leadership Series is an educational and training space for survivors of partner abuse in the LGBTQ+, Kink, and/or polyamorous communities. Our hope ito support survivors in feeling better prepared to lead in and outside of their communities, educate others about partner abuse and its connection to oppression, and decide when and how to share their experiences. To continue our efforts to keep everyone safe during this pandemic, we are holding our Survivor Leadership Series via video conference.

Applications are CLOSED

Choosing to create awareness around partner abuse as a survivor takes a lot. It maybe that you're doing it as a way of educating others or creating change and understanding in your spaces. Our Survivor Leadership Series can support you through the process of figuring out how to become a leader in your communities and make the changes that feel right to you.

We offer workshops, trainings on skill development, space to process and connect with each other, and opportunities to share, all in a supportive environment with folks who share an experience of survivorship.

The purpose of this group is to cultivate leadership among folks in the LGBQ/T, polyamorous, and/or SM communities. People of color and transgender people are especially encouraged to apply.

We are not currently accepting applications.
