Grace Brown, age 20, created Project Unbreakable in October 2011. Grace works with survivors of sexual abuse who volunteer to be photographed for Project Unbreakable by holding a poster with a quote from their attacker.
Originally, Grace created the project to show the numbers and how common sexual assault was, but didn't realize until a few weeks into the project the healing power behind taking the words back. Her work has been featured by sources such as TIME magazine, the Guardian, Jezebel, the Washington Post, and more. She was recently honored by Mariska Hargitay's (Law and Order: SVU) organization, the Joyful Heart Foundation.
Grace will discuss how the project came to be, the power of having a voice, and also explain stories behind some of the images. For more information, contact Malinda Levis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Attendance vouchers will be available for students who attend as part of an academic assignment.
