Expanding to the USA

Join Unsilenced Voices and affiliate partners in providing education and resources to the community and survivors of domestic violence in the USA in 2021/2022.

Operating in Ghana, Sierra Leone, Rwanda and soon in the USA, Unsilenced Voices works with partners to implement shelters, sensitization programs and pro bono legal assistance through a network of attorney volunteers. Additionally, vocational training, medical and counseling are provided for victims of domestic abuse and sexual gender-based violence.

A large part of Unsilenced Voices’ mission is collaborating with existing organizations to educate the community. “As a society, we need to stand up and speak up together. We want women to know how to get out. They don’t have to stay where they are. In addition to escaping to shelters, they need to know how to file restraining orders, how to create a resume and fill out job applications,” says CEO/Founder Michelle Jewsbury.

During the COVID-19 virus epidemic, there has been a surge in domestic violence cases worldwide.  The French Interior Minister has said there have been a 36% increase in police interventions in Paris after the lockdown was enforced.   In Australia, Google has seen an influx of 75% of searches for domestic violence during the lockdown.  National Abuse Hotlines in the USA and UK have seen a dramatic increase in calls.  We need to bring awareness to this together. 

We know that philanthropy is an essential part of your approach to corporate responsibility.  It is important to improve access to health and enhance the quality of life in our communities.  By partnering with us, we can provide the education needed to stop this injustice.  We plan to work with locally ran organizations in 12 cities across the USA over the course of 12 months to provide training to members of their communities and survivors of domestic violence, sexual abuse and human trafficking.  We invite you to join us in creating a world where we can share our stories of survival, celebrate our safety, and stop the cycles of abuse.  Thank you for your constant support
