Our Team

We are a survivor-centered movement, fighting for the right of all children and adolescents to live a life in safety and with dignity free from sexual violence.

Rosalia Rivera

Our Team

We are survivors with different backgrounds and our experiences with sexual violence are varied. But we share a common knowledge of what it’s like to feel alone, to be hidden, to live scared, and to hold onto misplaced blame. We know what it’s like to carry shame.

This is a burden we refuse to carry any longer. We are transforming our shame into our call for bold and transformative action through the Brave Movement:

For survivors everywhere to find healing, agency, and their power to heal.

For perpetration to be prevented and perpetrators held to account and brought to justice.

To enable adults, leaders, and institutions that perpetuate the silence to transform into allies.

Global Steering Group

We are the Global Steering Group (GSG) - a network of connected partners with a diverse range of thought leadership and expertise in our respective fields.
