Event description

Description

As part of The B Right On LGBT Community Festival

Hosted by the Survivors Movement.

This will be the 2nd year for The Walk of Survivors organised and run by The Survivors Movement. It’s starts with a march at The Level (Brighton) and proceed up to The Phil Starr Pavilion, Victoria Gardens for a family friendly event.

The Survivors Movement is a grass route movement set up on the grounds of social impact to provide and build a peer to peer support network for adult survivors of sexual abuse and violence. The concept of The Walk of Survivors is to essentially create a pride for survivors to be proud of the survivor they are today. The organisers aim to send the message of empowerment, courage, strength, solidarity. They as survivorsrealise and understand the importance of changing how the general public look upon this as a stigmatised and taboo subject and they feel its time to create a platform to speak out and encourage future generations to speak out sooner. This year they are very proud to announce that they will be collaborating with The LGBT Community Safety Forum and the B Right On LGBT Community Festival.

They need the support of the whole community. They will make no assumption on the day of peoples individual survivor status. You do not have to identify as a survivor to attend but the organisers ask that you join other attendees in creating a safe and empowering place for a potentially triggering subject matter. All are welcome.

The event aims to create platforms for approved and regulated networks and organisations to promote their services and support networks for survivors of sexual abuse and violence so that attendees have a greater awareness of what is accessible to them.
