The Stories We Tell can change the world: Join us for our June writing workshop in NYC.

Northwestern Workshop
Every sexual violence survivor story has power and purpose. With that belief as our guide, The Voices and Faces Project created "The Stories We Tell," a two-day testimonial writing program for survivors of sexual violence, domestic violence and trafficking. During "The Stories We Tell," workshop participants read and discuss history's most compelling and world-changing testimonial writing - including works by Sandra Cisneros, Bob Dylan, Martin Luther King, Jr., Primo Levi, and Adrienne Rich - while taking part in a series of innovative real-time writing exercises.

We read, we write and we consider social movements that have changed the world, while looking forward to the changes we can make by sharing our own testimonies. "The Stories We Tell" is a Voices and Faces Project workshop that is as purposeful as it is powerful - a way to use our own voices to create a more just and fair world.

Applications for the NYC "Stories We Tell" writing workshop June 21-22 are due June 10th. For workshop application/details, email

Lived Through This

Read it and be moved: Lived Through This
Eight years ago, Voices and Faces founder Anne K. Ream and documentary photographer Patricia Evans began a multi-country journey interviewing and photographing a community of sexual violence and trafficking survivors who have been "shaped, but refused to be defined, by their histories of violence." Lived Through This, Anne's memoir of that journey, is the result. V-Day founder Eve Ensler calls Lived Through This a book of "Heart-stopping, beautifully rendered stories of survivors powerfully illustrating the notion that when we tell our stories, we change the story." Read the Publishers Weekly review of Lived Through This or order this groundbreaking book on the Random House site.
