My Sister's House proudly presents
My Sister's House is honored to present Speak Up South Carolina 2022: Stories of Survival, a domestic violence awareness and advocacy campaign elevating first-person testimonies from Lowcountry domestic violence survivors.
This year, we are shining a spotlight on the survivors themselves, and providing a platform for them to share their stories. Survivors of domestic violence in their childhood homes, survivors of physical, mental, emotional, and verbal abuse, survivors who sought support and struggled to overcome systemic barriers – every story has vital lessons for advocates, partners, and providers.
Now more than ever, as domestic violence continues to escalate throughout our state and nation, it's critical that we unite in support of victims across the Lowcountry. We look forward to seeing you this October.
