3 Things WE Are Talking About at WE Survive Abuse

  1. WE thought, this was a brilliant article written by Ira Madison III.  

       But, after he was zealously criticized for mentioning that Woody Allen’s daughter recently publicly accused him of child sexual abuse, WE were wondering what kind of prizes people are getting for supporting Woody Allen with such passion.

        I say to those “onlookers”, child sexual abuse isn’t a sporting event folks.  

        Such behavior is one of the main reasons that victims of sexual violence don’t  come forward. They are terrified of this type of reaction.

Society doesn’t attack any other crime victims this way.  

        Why do this to victims of sexual violence?  


  1. WE continue to be in complete disbelief of the number of people who fail young black victims of sexual violence. Black victims of sexual and domestic violence are less likely to be believed.

         Therefore, we may be more likely to remain in violent relationships. We may be         less likely to reach out for life saving healing and receive much needed support.


  1.  WE are talking about the continued silence around intersectional conversations in domestic and sexual violence.

        One Ex:  It is not only necessary, but required that we have both conversation             and action around race and how it impacts victims, survivors, and prevention.

        Communities remain unserved not just from lack of resources, or lack of funding;         but from a simultaneous and unified lack of courage.

         At some point, we must all have the courage to be uncomfortable at the same            time.

        The intersections also include other races, other ethnicities, LGBT, social classes,           faiths, male victims, etc.


In order to, make great change, WE have to have gargantuan courage, at the same time.
