The Voices and Faces Project

The Chicago-based Voices and Faces Project challenges assumptions about sexual violence, using the testimony of women and men who have lived through it.

"From the Inside" is an interactive lecture and photography presentation hosted in Hamilton by the Woman Abuse Working Group and followed by a panel discussion involving local survivors of sexual assault, incest and date rape.

This is a chance for survivors to hear other survivor's stories and for community members to put a face to the experience of rape.

Come and be a part of changing the public perception of sexual assault in our community.

Visit voicesandfaces.org for more information about this award-winning documentary project.

May is Sexual Violence Awareness Month.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.

rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
