My name is Michelle Jewsbury and I am the Executive Director of Unsilenced Voices; a nonprofit organization that implements shelters, sensitization programs, legal assistance, vocational training, medical and counseling to victims of domestic abuse and sexual gender based violence worldwide.
Over 20,000 women have lost their lives due to domestic violence since 2003. I almost became one of those women. In 2015 I summoned the strength to break the cycle, leave my abuser and share my story, which is what led to the start of Unsilenced Voices.
Currently we are fundraising for a National Domestic Violence Awareness Tour taking place in 2022. This tour is essential to the safety of our community because it will
- give people the ability to hear real stories from survivors
- increase awareness about domestic violence and human trafficking in the USA
- demonstrate how domestic violence is more than gender discrimination
- help people understand the worst possible outcome, people losing their lives.
I would like to invite you to join us on July 22nd, 2021 at Bears Best Country Club in Las Vegas for a fundraiser that will impact hundreds of thousands of people. There will be lunch, cocktails and lots of opportunities to network.All proceeds from this event will go directly to the 2022 Awareness Tour. Our goal is to raise $60,000, but we need your help.
RSVP TODAY- I get it, time is your most valuable asset.If you can't come, consider contributing at least $500 and your name will be highlighted at the event!
You have the opportunity to speak up and make a difference. Join us and Unite to stop the separation.

Here is our current project information for Ghana, Sierra Leone, and Rwanda:
With the help of the Ark Foundation in Ghana, we are now doing monthly sensitizations with the Kayayei women in Accra. These women typically live in very harsh conditions with lack to resources and education. Unsilenced Voices is providing a safe space to report any injust and educate these women about their rights.
Children whose mothers are survivors of domestic violence received school materials under financial support of UNSILENCENCED VOICES in Rwanda. They are happy, thankful and promised to work hard at school so that they will make their mothers so strong more than they are now.
In Sierra Leone, We have began a program call SINAVA Women. This is a group of women formed by Unsilenced Voices from the out cast of Bo city, aimed at empowering our women and girls through sustainable livelihood.....
"It feels amazing to know when you're actually growing as a woman.
To recognize you're making better decisions .
Our culture needs to be influenced by women who are wise, resourceful, accountable, secured in their womanhood and aware of their feminine power.."
And so we observed our first official opening yesterday of which our able Director Phillip Momoh and our Manager Tejan Kabia were present, and also the Area chief, Religious leaders and other stakeholders were in attendance and they all made a statement on the theme " A woman is the full circle, within her is the power to create, nurture and transform"
