FAQ

projectunbreakable:

Who are you?

My name is Grace Brown. I am a twenty-one year old photographer & public speaker from Massachusetts. 

Project Unbreakable is also run by a team of 3 other women:

Kaelyn Siversky, director

Christina Dunlop, assistant

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 projectunbreakablesubmissions@gmail.com. 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
  • there are no names on your poster
PLEASE NOTE: By submitting a photo to this website, you grant Project Unbreakable permission to publish it on this site or elsewhere including print publications. Your name and email address will never be included or distributed. 
Can I send in a video? A song? A story?

We prefer to only post images. You are welcome to share your story here at Survivor Stories, however.

Who can participate? 

We do not discriminate as to who can participate in Project Unbreakable. We welcome anyone who has experienced any form of sexual abuse, whether physical or emotional. Male, female, transgender, genderqueer, etc. However, we do not allow children to participate. 

Why don’t you post more often?

This project is a sensitive topic, and we 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 we receive, in addition to the photos I shoot, the backlog is about 1-3 months. We accept all submissions unless we 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?

Frank Warren of PostSecret did a great job answering that question here. (We agree with it.)

Can you give me advice on something?

We are not qualified to give advice. If you are struggling, RAINN has a free, confidential, 24/7 sexual assault hotline: 1.800.656.HOPE(4673). RAINN also has an online hotline: https://ohl.rainn.org/online/

I don’t want advice, but how can I get in touch with you in general?

For general inquiries, concerns, and media requests: projectunbreakable@gmail.com

To book a speaking event: booking@project-unbreakable.org

Reposting this for those who may need questions answered.
