Sharing Stories: Building Power in Communities to Combat Sexual Assault

Saras Blueprint is focused on the sharing of stories of sexual assault. Her Blueprint is for both survivors and community members to talk about how these experiences harm not only individuals, but entire networks. Her hope is that it will be an online space that individuals can submit their videos, written narrative, artwork, photography and other mediums that help share the individual story. Sara is working to grow this initiative into a larger national project, but she is currently focusing on introducing it in her home states public higher education system The University of Wisconsin. The end goal is for this to be healing for survivors by providing them with a safe space to share their narratives and build a community of support and for it to be used to push for policy change around sexual assault on college campuses in the state of Wisconsin.
