Survivors are so much more than the trauma they have endured. Learn about the unique strengths, gifts and resilience of individuals who have experienced domestic abuse through the words and artwork shown on this page in response to the question:

“What words describe who you are beyond the trauma you have experienced?”

We invite survivors of domestic violence to share their answers to this question through written words, poetry, artwork, music or memes. Through this “I Am” campaign, we hope to highlight the unique identities, strengths, and resilience of survivors.
