Our Mission

The As One Project provides a community-based forum where secondary survivors of sexual violence can get information about how to support themselves and the survivors in their lives. As One hopes to create a safe space where people can learn about sexual violence, share their stories, and empower one another along their path to healing.

Our Vision

The As One Project aspires to create a culture that encourages open dialogue about sexual violence in our society. We are determined to build the capacity of secondary survivors to be effective advocates and allies, on any level, for safe communities free from sexual violence. Ultimately, through educating and empowering secondary survivors, survivors of sexual violence will be surrounded by individuals and communities better equipped to help them heal.
