The Leadership at Unspoken Voices
KILOMARIE Granda - FOUNDER

In 2018, KiloMarie completed their LADC Licensure. They currently serve as the Executive Director and primary advocate for Unspoken Voices.
Throughout their career, educationally and professionally as a Violence Prevention and Response Program Coordinator, advocate, and professional speaker, KiloMarie Granda has seen the damage caused in the lives of many due to interpersonal violence. As a result of this and their own experience as a survivor of power-based violence, KiloMarie realized that far too many individuals' voices, including their own, often remain unspoken.
For far too long, victim/survivors, bystanders, and our society has remained silent on the issues of personal power-based violence. The silence must be shattered. We must be willing to raise our own voices and declare that violence is not okay, not tolerable, and should never be encouraged.
KiloMarie has been honored by RAINN in their “survivor spotlight" series, has served as a PFUND Fellow (2017), Change Network Fellow (2018), and is currently a Shannon Fellow (2019). KiloMarie currently serves on the MN Criminal Sexual Conduct Statutory Reform Working Group and Steering Committee. KiloMarie was also honored to be receive the 2019 “Outstanding Service Provider” award from the Minnesota Coalition Against Sexual Assault.
