To Survivors of Sexual Violence

In response to an act of sexual violence against a minor in The Bahamas, we wrote this letter to survivors:

 

Survivors,

We’ve got your back.
We will help you #CarryThatWeight.
It is not your fault.
You are not alone.

You are worthy…
Of love.
Of support.
Of respect.

You are deserving…
Of dignity.
Of privacy.
Of empathy.

Your presence is palpable.
Your voice is beautiful.
Your story is powerful.
Your life is valuable.

We are here for you.
We stand with you.
We are listening to you.
We believe you.

You are not alone.
It’s not your fault.
We will help your carry that weight.
We’ve got your back.

Love and Solidarity,
Coalition to End Gender-based Violence & Discrimination
