What Is SOS?
Speak Out Summit was created to spread awareness throughout the month of April which is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. This quickly evolved into a 5-day event as a way to begin having more in-depth conversations within the virtual community on the impact of Sexual Violence.
This 5-day summit will feature expert coaches, advocates and spiritual leaders from across the country to educate you on how to have healthy conversations around Sexual Violence, equip you with the know-how to support survivors and empower survivors to release shame, guilt and fear and begin the process to healing and thriving.
