Welcome to the Survivors Speak RI Website!

Who We Are and What We Do

Survivors Speak RI is a speaker’s bureau comprised of survivors that share their own personal stories of sexual assault and domestic violence in a high powered and dynamics discussion.

All of our programs will leave you with a better understanding of the effects of sexual assault from the victims perspective. Survivors have a powerful impact on an audience by making the often hidden crime of sexual violence very real. It has been found that audiences are more responsive to real voices and real people.​

SSRI programs includes explicit details of child molestation, adult rape and domestic violence. Survivors take you on their emotionally haunting journey as they transition from being a victim, to being a survivor of sex crimes and domestic violence crimes.

Our philosophy is to directly engage our audience and communicate with them on a personal level as we educate them about the subject of sexual assault, domestic violence, and trauma.

We are the missing link to complement your training.

Let us take you with us on our journey from victim to survivor.

SSRI Working For Changes

One of our many goals at Survivors Speak RI is to help victims in as many ways as possible. On March 12th 2019 we were given the opportunity to briefly speak to the Senate Committee to encourage change in the statute of limitations law. Our concern was to extend the amount of time victims are allowed to pursue compensation based on their day of discovery.

SSRI Speaking Out

“Many times, we think someone is ranting but they’re actually speaking with conviction: and everyone has just forgotten the sound of real passion. We’re so afraid of absolutes and a strong gut and digging in your heels, that we dismiss the powerful voice of a lonely fighter.” J.S. Park.
