VOICES: Survivor Stories


Every survivor has a story. Every survivor’s journey to healing is unique. Through our work, OPDV has the privilege to meet and learn from many of these brave individuals. 

In May of 2024, OPDV launched the VOICES: Survivor Stories educational series. The survivors featured here are sharing their stories in hopes of raising awareness and letting others who have had similar experiences know they are not alone. We are honored to work with and highlight New York State survivors.
