UNSPOKEN VOICES RESOURCES
Our greatest dream and utmost, central goal is to educate the public about domestic violence, drug addiction, bullying, homo- and trans-phobia, sex trafficking, stalking, rape, and other various forms of brutality against individuals. You may believe that such violence does not exist in your community. Believe us—it does. Our intention in offering these resources and creating change behind educating the public about them is not so much to trigger or hurt individuals, but rather to inform each and every one of us the steps we might take to save someone's life. Even yours.
