Surviving in Numbers

By empowering survivors of sexual & domestic violence and through prevention work with youth, changing the culture to end the cycles of violence and victim-blaming.

We empower survivors, shift how individuals and communities respond to survivors, and through prevention workshops with youth, end the cycles of violence and victim-blaming that keep so many survivors isolated. To date, we’ve trained over 20,000 teens, providers, clinicians, government officials, & helped over 700 survivors worldwide.

Our Method

Military Workshops
Only 11% of military sexual assault survivors report the assault.
Military survivors face unique hurdles in reporting or seeking justice and safety after an assault. Surviving in Numbers works with military survivors to help them share their stories in a safe, anonymous way that brings awareness to the problem without forcing a survivor to make a formal report about their assault.

Trainings for Youth
44% of sexual assault survivors are under the age of 18.
At the high school level, Surviving in Numbers has implemented CDC and provider-informed curriculum using data from stories shared through Surviving in Numbers to teach peers how to support survivors, how not to victim-blame, how to positively respond to survivors to help them heal, and more.

Campus & Community Trainings
1 in 5 college students will be sexually assaulted before graduating. On campuses & in communities, survivors can make posters about their experiences of violence, attend a workshop on consent, peer support, and empowerment, and/or host a display of posters previously made by survivors.
