Dedicated to change.
#InMyWords is a youth-led campaign to reimagine justice and healing for all sexual harm survivors and to fight for solutions at the scale of the problem.
Oftentimes, our culture defines justice as jail time, firings, or school punishments. These processes work for some, but for many, they are re-traumatizing or fail to create the behavioral change that many survivors want.
America needs institutional responses that prioritize both justice and healing, not one at the expense of the other. We need more options. Are you with us?
Support our campaign!
Mobilizing the grassroots for survivors' justice and healing is a big project. Currently, we're a small, dedicated team of unpaid volunteers in our twenties, and several of us (who aren't students) want to do this work full-time! We need your help to do that.
There are three ways you can support us right now:
Share what survivors' justice means to you.

Survivors' justice is when our institutional responses to sexual harm prioritize BOTH justice and healing, not one at the expense of the other. #InMyWords
All survivors — regardless of whether a report is filed or a harm-doer is exposed — deserve justice, healing and trust.
We cannot jail, fire or expel our way out of this crisis. We need institutional responses to sexual harm that prioritize both justice and healing, not one at the expense of the other.
