Hear from our participants.

“For me, participating in My Story, My Terms, was like being thrown a lifeline in the middle of processing and healing from sexual trauma. Each week I looked forward to working with a group of highly trained individuals who helped me write and speak candidly about my experience. I felt so supported and cared for at NOW and it helped me gain a better perspective on the injustices that took place during and after my abuse. The storytelling workshop was such a wonderful gift, and I would give it 100 times over if I could.” – M.H.
