I cannot begin to express how excited I am about the More Than A Survivor campaign that is going on tour across the US. GEMS has made this all happen and they describe it best.
“The More Than A Survivor: More Than A Story Campaign and Poster Series features a series of stunning portraits of 22 women from across the country who are all survivor leaders in a variety of venues from the arts to politics to science to the non-profit community and more. The More Than A Survivor photography exhibition honors their diversity, beauty, strength, accomplishments and leadership and celebrates their present and their future. The exhibition features the leadership of survivors in their communities, their families and in their own lives and presents their images and words as a powerful antidote to the stereotypes of commercially sexually exploited and trafficked victims perpetually broken and forever limited by their trauma. This traveling exhibition is also designed to be a poster series that will utilized by youth serving agencies to inspire a tangible sense of hope and future for commercially sexually exploited and trafficked girls and women.
To request this exhibition in your city, please contact Sheila White, GEMS’ Survivor Leadership Coordinator firstname.lastname@example.org.”
