YOU ARE NOT ALONE
In January 2022, I was drugged and raped by fraternity member at the University of Arkansas. I had evidence of bruises, a rape kit, and two witnesses as well. The rape was reported and taken under investigation by the police department as well as the university. The police decided to do nothing about then situation because they were concerned that we would not win the court case and there was not enough evidence. The rapist is yet still wandering around the city of Fayetteville, Arkansas without any worry. Authorities were biased towards the suspect and did not want to fight for me at all. I have PTSD from the rape and having the city of Fayetteville against me on this case, just made me feel more alone with all of this. There are many moments in the recovery process from this where I did not recognize myself anymore, I did not feel worthy, and above all I felt like an object. I decided to create this page to have a place for women to feel support and like they are not alone when going through something so traumatic. Empowering women throughout this tough journey is the goal and do anything I can to help others not feel alone. You do not have to be silenced and you are allowed to feel all of the emotions when healing from sexual assault. These crimes are rarely taken care of and are mostly brushed off. There needs to be a change within the whole system so that our voices can be heard. We have a voice.
We Have a Voice is dedicated to a few central causes which we believe are crucial in helping us achieve our goals. As a growing movement, we divide our time and efforts so that we can truly invest in each cause. Read on to learn more.
No One Should be Silenced
All the time victims are told that their story is false. Because of this, victims feel as if they should not speak out about it with the fear that others will continue to not believe them. We should not be silenced and our stories are not irrelevant. Sharing our traumas will encourage women to speak out and that is how we can make a difference in this "rape culture" world. I believe your story and I am here for you. Let us women get together and make a difference because a change is needed. I believe that the best solutions for society come from within, and make it our mission to build awareness so that change is a possibility across the globe.
We Have a Voice is to build an environment of support and helpful resources to make sure that Partnership is always a priority. Our success is driven by the hearts, minds, and souls of our community. While we all are healing from the trauma we have been through, this is a space to support and empower each other. You are not going through this alone.
Ensuring that All Voices are Heard
Everyone's story is important to me and heard. I believe that there is strength in numbers, and we work to inform and encourage others to take a stand to not be silenced.
