The Houston Area Women’s Center (HAWC) stands with sexual assault survivors as they bravely share their stories on a public platform to ignite real change in the systems and perspectives that respond to sexual assault. It is through the courageous voices of survivors that we can truly revolutionize systems, protocols, and understandings to provide them with the compassionate and trauma-informed care they deserve.

HAWC is excited to announce Miss Houston Mary Sickler as a spokesperson for this campaign. We celebrate survivors’ unwavering strength and resilience in working towards a future where the barriers hindering their journey to healing and justice are eradicated once and for all.

The #SurvivorsSpeak campaign is a vital initiative aimed at amplifying these powerful voices in a society that all too often places blame and shame on survivors.
