A national speak-out platform dedicated to eradicating domestic violence and sexual abuse by giving survivors a voice
For approximately five years, Violence UnSilenced served as a volunteer platform for other writers to share their stories. Maggie created the project and curated the posts, which were all written by survivors of domestic abuse and/or sexual assault. She also moderated the community of readers that read and supported the writers. Violence UnSilenced evolved into a nonprofit with a board, which eventually moved to dissolve and shutter the site when it could no longer serve the survivors to the best of its ability. They were the priority throughout the project.
