Hi everyone!

If you were assaulted on your college campus and you were photographed for Project Unbreakable, please send an email our way with a link to your photo — we would like to gather a handful of them together to create a post about campus assaults. Please only send if you are comfortable with your photo being reposted. Thank you! projectunbreakable@gmail.com

Due to our concern over some of the comments made on a previous post regarding male sexual assault, we want to remind you that male sexual assault is real and prevalent. Male survivors deserve as much respect as any other survivor of sexual violence. 

Project Unbreakable is a community of people who believe in providing a safe place for all survivors of sexual violence, regardless of gender identity. We are here to support and believe all survivors.

Any comment made undermining male sexual assault will be removed and the user potentially banned. 

We take this issue very seriously. We hope you do too.

We want to take this time to acknowledge the incredibly brave men who have shared their story with all of us. Thank you for your courage.

Here is a list on Buzzfeed of 25 male survivors who participated in Project Unbreakable.

Hi everyone :)

It’s Grace — Kaelyn and I are in our hotel room on our last night in Switzerland. We have had an amazing time meeting such beautiful activists and survivors. We feel so lucky. Here is a photo of us in front of the Swiss Alps! 

I’m writing to you tonight for two reasons — the first is that we are thrilled to announce the start of a brand new photography project. It will be titled Spectrum, and it will feature intimate portraits of couples who are members of the LGBTQ community, providing a glimpse into the everyday lives and relationships of these couples. It is our hope that it not only brings light and normalization for those not in the community, but that it also helps others who are struggling with their identities. 

We have never addressed this publicly, but we are deeply invested this project because both Kaelyn and I are members of the LGBTQ community. After meeting through Unbreakable, we started a relationship and have been dating for a year and a half. We think it is important to share this part of our lives so that others know that there are people out there who understand them and are willing to support them, much like the Project Unbreakable community has done since its creation. Our mission throughout both Project Unbreakable and Spectrum, as well in our personal lives, is to lessen any sort of isolation people may feel by being a member of these communities. 

We also want to note that this is not the end of Project Unbreakable — we are still going be continuing our work with it alongside our work with Spectrum, as Unbreakable is still a deep passion for us. We hope that you will continue to support us in our journey.

With love & gratitude,

Grace & Kaelyn

Why I Stopped Talking About What Happened, And Why I'm Changing That →

Hi everyone, it’s Grace. I wrote an article for the Huffington Post yesterday and I wanted to share it with you. It is something I have wanted to talk more about for a long time, but I haven’t had the courage to do so. Thank you to everyone involved in the project for teaching me how to be a little more brave.

Much love.

We finished up our North American college tour today! Thank you so much to everyone from the sixteen schools who came out and joined us at our events. Oh, and PS: I realized today that as of last week, I’ve officially spoken at 50 schools in the past two years! So crazy and so awesome.

Have a great weekend. :)
