Hosted by the Survivors Movement as part of The B Right On LGBT+ Community Festival this, the second year for The Walk of Survivors will take place today, Sunday, March 31.
IT will commence with a march starting from The Level (Brighton) at noon proceeding up to The Phil Starr Pavilion, Victoria Gardens for a family friendly event for the rest of the afternoon.
The Survivors Movement is a grass route movement set up on the grounds of social impact to provide and build a peer to peer support network for adult survivors of sexual abuse and violence.
The concept of The Walk of Survivors is to help create a Pride for survivors to be proud of the survivor they are today. The organisers aim to send the message of empowerment, courage, strength, solidarity.
They as survivors realise and understand the importance of changing how the general public look upon this as a stigmatised and taboo subject and feel its time to create a platform to speak out and encourage future generations to speak out sooner.
This year organisers are proud to be collaborating with Brighton & Hove LGBT+ Community Safety Forum and the B RIGHT ON LGBT+ Community Festival.
They need the support of the whole community and will make no assumption on the day of people’s individual survivor status.
You do not have to identify as a survivor to attend but the organisers ask that you join other attendees in creating a safe and empowering place for a potentially triggering subject matter. Everyone is welcome.
The event aims to create platforms for approved and regulated networks and organisations to promote their services and support networks for survivors of sexual abuse and violence so that attendees have a greater awareness of what is accessible to them.
END THE STIGMA, STOP THE SILENCE!
