A HEARTFELT THANK YOU TO ALL SPONSORS, SUPPORTERS & SURVIVORS FOR AN AMAZING 2013 CLEAN SLATE DIARIES EVENT! AS OUR MISSION CONTINUES TO GROW, REMEMBER ~ THE SOUND OF SILENCE HAS NEVER BEEN SO LOUD!
A Video Message from Grammy-Award Winner, Sarah McLachlan:
“The Clean Slate Diaries is doing the work of the angels helping rape survivors reclaim their sense of strength and wholeness.”
The Clean Slate Diaries was created to recognize the journey of survivors of Sexual Abuse & Domestic Violence. Currently, there are no races or marathons taking place in support of survivor recovery, or color-coded products sold to recognize the intense courage and fierce determination required to overcome the trauma that remains from these crimes.
Clean Slate Founder and Executive Producer, Renee DeVesty, knew that finding your voice was an essential first step in the healing process. A survivor of Rape and Intimate Partner Violence, she decided to choreograph an evening of Art, Music, Dance and Spoken Word Stories that would inspire and empower survivors to break through the darkness of guilt and shame and allow their light to shine – their voice to be heard.
Held annually during April’s Sexual Assault Awareness Month in Syracuse, New York, countless survivors are being empowered to take a step towards the light of healing because of the inspiration found in the community of those who understand.
Despite anything that has happened, a new beginning is always available to us – an opportunity to wipe the slate clean and begin again.
And The Clean Slate Diaries is doing that … one survivor at a time.
