“Renee DeVesty & The Clean Slate Diaries are doing the work of the Angels helping Rape Survivors reclaim their sense of Strength and Wholeness.” ~ Laurie Halse Anderson, NY Times Bestselling Author of “Speak”
The Clean Slate Diaries was created to Empower survivors of Sexual Abuse & Domestic Violence with a renewed sense of Hope to overcome, and the knowledge that they are not alone in their victimization.
Clean Slate Founder and Executive Director, Renee DeVesty (a survivor of Rape, Pregnancy from Rape and Intimate Partner Violence) lost 20 years of her life to the isolation and despair that accompanies these crimes. She knew that believing she could reclaim her life was an essential first step in the healing process and wanted to inspire survivors to break through the darkness of shame and allow their light to shine. The events, fundraisers and workshops are produced by survivors, for survivors - enabling the brilliant ’Clean Slate’ light to illuminate the path for others to find healing, inspiration and strength.
In only its’ third year, The Clean Slate Diaries has over 10,000 followers on Facebook, partnered with SEVEN colleges and universities in 2013 and is working to bring this Mission of Transformation to Military Bases and High Schools as well. Countless female and male survivors are being empowered to take their first step towards the light of healing because of the inspiration found in this extensive community of those who understand.
