Who are you?
My name is Grace Brown. I am a twenty year old photographer & public speaker from Massachusetts.
Project Unbreakable is also run by a team of 4 other women:
Kaelyn Siversky, director
Christina Dunlop, assistant
Lydia Billings, photo editor
Kerri Pang, social media manager
What started Project Unbreakable?
I’ve always been surrounded by survivors of sexual assault. One night in October, I was out with a friend and she chose to share her story with me. Though I had heard about a dozen stories prior, this story particularly affected me and forced me to realize how common this tragedy was. I woke up the next day with the idea for Project Unbreakable.
How do I participate?
Feel free to email us your submission at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please make sure of the following:
the image is clear and easy to read
- the words are in quotations
- the person in your photo is of you only
I prefer to only post images, unless the above things are accompanied with images. You are welcome to share your story here at Survivor Stories, however.
Who can participate?
I do not discriminate as to who can participate in Project Unbreakable. I welcome anyone who has experienced any form of sexual abuse, whether physical or emotional. Male, female, transgender, genderqueer, etc.
Why don’t you post more often?
This project is a sensitive topic, and I don’t want to overwhelm anyone with what is being posted. It’s more important to make sure that everyone following the blog also takes time for themselves.
Why haven’t you posted my photo yet?
Due to the sheer amount of daily submissions I receive, in addition to the photos I shoot, the backlog is about 3 months. I accept all submissions unless I have stated otherwise by email. If you’re worried about us not receiving your image, we are happy to double-check for you.
How do you know that all of these stories are real?
I think Frank Warren of PostSecret did a great job answering that question here. (I agree with it.)
How can I get in touch with you?
