Share Your Story


If you have been the victim of a sexual assault, or have been affected by sexual violence towards another person, then we would like to hear your story.

Our goals are educational and transformative. We strongly believe that your stories need to be heard. By ending the silence, we force ourselves to witness the harms that result from sexual violence in our communities, and we remind survivors that they are not alone. Without such open discussion, there can be little hope for change.

Your ‘story’ may be written in either English or French, and may take whatever form you choose: a poem or personal narrative; an audio or video production; or a piece of visual artwork. Use the form below to submit your contribution, or make your mark by adding your experience to our map.

As the project develops, your stories (in full or in part) will be included in smaller collections, be presented during public events (e.g., live readings), or used in other It Happens Here materials.

We welcome both signed and anonymous contributions. When you complete the form below, a confirmation page will appear that you can print, or download, as a record or your submission.

If you prefer to send your story by email, or have any questions about this project, don’t hesitate to contact us at

If at any point you wish to withdraw your story, you need only email us and (if available) attach a copy of your confirmation page.
