Going Forward: Survivors to Thrivers Movement
will expand the #metoo movement by:

Guiding survivors to find strength and freedom through naming and reclaiming
their unique gifts and releasing limiting beliefs

  • Enabling the rewriting of old narratives into “Going-Forward  Stories”; ones of wholeness and purpose

  •  Bringing awareness and light into the shame, silence and darkness of sexual abuse


We believe: 

We have astonishing capacity but often face circumstances that create a barrier to our ability to
manifest our full potential

  • We all have a right to live beyond merely existing

  • We can reclaim our story; free from pain, ill health, guilt or shame

  • As a community we can create a supportive, validating and empowering place to counter the culture of sexual abuse that silences victims


We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people the permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
— Marianne Williamson
