Amplified Stories: I'm afraid sometimes, but I know I'm not alone.

AMPLIFIED STORIES is a platform created by KCSARC in order to amplify the voices of survivors of sexual violence. Shared experiences hold the power to validate, heal, and change. The post below was submitted by a survivor who gave KCSARC permission to share their story.

This post contains a story of sexual violence. If at any time, you feel unsafe, need support, or need to talk, please call our 24-Hour Resource Line: 1.888.99.VOICE (1.888.998.6423).


When I confronted my abusers, they resented me and gave me denial.

My own family does not believe me nor trust me anymore.

I feel lost and afraid sometimes, but I know I'm not alone.  

I feel better about sharing [my story], but it's not going to solve anything.

I need a job and other resources to move away from my abusers. As far away as possible.
