As Unbreakable expands to include Intimate Partner Violence and Child Abuse we’d like to take a moment to define Intimate Partner Violence or IPV.

As defined by the CDC- The term “intimate partner violence” describes physical, sexual, or psychological harm by a current or former partner or spouse. This type of violence can occur among heterosexual or same-sex couples and does not require sexual intimacy.

We invite survivors of intimate partner violence and child abuse (in any form - physical, verbal, emotional, financial, etc) to take part in Unbreakable.

If you are interested in participating in Unbreakable you can submit a photograph of yourself holding a poster with a quote from your abuser to projectunbreakablesubmissions@gmail.com. We kindly ask that you note which subject you are submitting to in the subject line - “intimate partner violence” or “child abuse”.

Thank you,
The Unbreakable Team

We are so excited to announce this! One of my very close friends, Max Turk, is a Portland-based artist who creates jewelry made of locally harvested herbs. She came to us earlier in the month with an incredible idea — she wanted to create a special necklace for Unbreakable for healing, empowerment, and self-love. You can read more about what is in the necklace (and what each herb/flower does for healing) here, and feel free to check out Max’s work at Roots & Crowns! She was also generous enough to donate half the profits to our cause.

PS: My favorite part is that on the birch bark inside the necklace, it reads “To Overcome” “To be Complete” and “To Empower”. You can’t see it but I like just knowing it’s there. 

Much love!

Grace and the rest of the Unbreakable team

Unbreakable Now Expands to Include Relationship Violence and Child Abuse Survivors

After almost three years of working one-on-one with sexual assault survivors, we began to discuss plans to expand our mission - we want to be able to support and extend the healing powers of Unbreakable to as many people as possible. After careful discussion and consideration, we have decided to invite survivors of relationship violence and child abuse (in any form - physical, verbal, emotional, financial, etc) to take part in Unbreakable.

If you are interested in participating in Unbreakable you can submit a photograph of yourself holding a poster with a quote from your abuser to projectunbreakablesubmissions@gmail.com. We kindly ask that you note which subject you are submitting to in the subject line - “relationship violence” or “child abuse”.

With deep gratitude,
The Unbreakable Team

A friend of mine shared this post on Twitter today about something one of her friend’s witnessed in NYC last night, and I felt it was important for us to post it on here - as a way of both getting the word out and seeing if anyone has any way of helping the situation (blogging, writing an article, knowledge of a missing person, etc.) Please share if you can - there has to be something we can do to help. It is possible to get in touch with the original source - please first email it to projectunbreakable@gmail.com and we will forward it to her. 

Hi!!

We are beginning to prepare for our Fall 2014 tour and we are so excited to meet all of you and hear your ideas!

As we begin to finalize our presentations, we want to know: what do you want to hear? What do you want to discuss or talk about? We are interested in your ideas and want to incorporate them into our discussions with you!

Please let us know what you would like to hear and how you would like to hear it. Our goal is to bring this conversation to each and every one of you in the best way we can!

All love,
The Unbreakable Team
