One Voice

One Voice is Day One’s survivor advocacy group dedicated to using advocacy and public speaking as a vehicle to end sexual violence.

Our group began in 2010 with just a few survivors and has since grown to involve over a dozen women and men who all share the same goal: raising public awareness of sexual assault and encouraging other survivors to seek their own healing.

Through education, awareness, empowerment and service, One Voice is bringing survivors together to educate the community and work as 'one voice' aligned to end sexual violence.  By sharing our personal stories, we hope to give strength to survivors of sexual assault and show that you can heal and lead a happy, productive life after sexual assault.

Hear from Jane, One Voice group leader, about One Voice’s purpose.

One Voice members have reached thousands of people through speaking engagements and presentations throughout the Rhode Island and Massachusetts area, including:

  • Speaking at area colleges and universities
  • Presenting at the Rhode Island State House as part of National Sexual Assault Awareness Month
  • Testifying at the Rhode Island State House as part of a Special Commission Studying Sexual Assault on College Campuses
