Rape continues to be one of the most violent acts and crimes against humanity; mainly women and children. Today, rape is still being used as a weapon in war and too often goes un-dealt with by authorities. Rape is a method violators use to control people, persecute religious women, advance genocide, and intimidate or frighten families. There are almost 500k victims in the US alone per year! And around 763 million around the globe in the last 10 years. This is a crisis. The survivors of these horrific experiences are left to deal with the trauma, insecurity, shame, anger, and stripping of dignity- and I want to help.
Broken Redeemed originally began as a poem I wrote as I dealt with the untreated trauma I’d experienced after 3 separate incidents of rape. The poem was then converted into a performance art piece that i’ve staged at my church to bring a voice to the issue and help those that have also experienced rape and have had no place to put the thoughts, memories, anger, frustrations, and pain. This year, I created a poetry workshop that helps survivors of rape embrace their story and express themselves through creative writing. Now, I am currently adapting the performance art piece into a book that I would like to distribute to local, national, and global organizations that are committed to helping children, women and men survivors of rape.
The Broken Redeemed Project is an effort to bring the Broken Redeemed Performance Art Piece, Poetry Workshops, and book to victims of rape in the US and across the globe. Many oppressed communities and countries do not have access to resources and support- created by survivors, and designed to speak directly to the damaged soul of a victim of rape.
