Stories that Change Stories about Sexual Assault

In their own words; Source – www.currentsolutions.co/our-team/

Our community is most powerful when we come together and speak openly about the issues that have not yet been sufficiently addressed.

Current Solutions provides a digital platform and a collective movement of followers contributing to our efforts to engage young people in stopping sexual assault, as well as dating and domestic violence. More importantly, our platform reassures the survivors that it is not their fault, that they are not alone, and that they have the right to speak out in their own voices – to recount with harrowing accuracy the events which have changed their lives forever. Above all, we want to share your stories, in your words – your unadulterated, unedited and invaluable words.
