Prince George’s County, Maryland – Tonya GJ Prince is from a community where silence around child sexual abuse is utilized as a necessary tool for survival. But, several years ago it was Tonya’s own mother who encouraged her to be even more vocal about fighting sexual violence. Tonya, who had been blogging about motivation and empowerment for a short while by then, started a new blog focused exclusively on domestic and sexual violence. In 2009, WESurviveAbuse.com was initiated.
I’ve been following you for a bit and love the message you share. You are doing great work, and I just wanted to let you know it touched me. – Nate (LinkedIn.com)
WESurviveAbuse.com has become an important source for survivors of abuse and violence. It is a site where survivors can see themselves as they really are. “The term “victim” seems to no longer mean someone who was targeted and attacked during an act of crime. People seem to have concluded that it now means manipulative, weak, and miserable.” – Tonya GJ Prince
The truth is that most survivors are strong, strategic, and ever devoted to hope and joy. At WESurviveAbuse.com there is proof of that with nearly every post.
Thank you @TonyaGJPrince you inspire me to keep giving to keep fighting even when I’m beat down I must put my back up against the wall and fight for those who can’t fight I must be a voice for those who can’t speak I must show them love. @Micheleham (twitter.com)
