The Memorial

We are surrounded by survivors of sexual violence. This memorial will honor the courage and strength of survivors, and it will bring awareness to the prevalence of sexual violence. It will let survivors know that our community believes them, supports them, and stands with them in solidarity. 

The memorial depicts two prominent metaphors: mosaic and a ripple effect. The mosaic represents that even broken pieces can be put together to create something whole and beautiful. The ripple effect represents the multiplying power of breaking the silence; by telling our stories, we unconsciously give other survivors permission to tell theirs.

All the perpetrator asks is that the bystander do nothing...The victim demands action, engagement, and remembering.
— Judith Herman, M.D.
