One Voice Project
The One Voice Project is a collaboration between a wide array of stakeholders, including survivors, loved ones, and providers from the sexual assault, domestic violence, healthcare, mental health and victims’ services fields in Colorado.
The project aims to measure access to care issues and opportunities for Adult Survivors of childhood sexual abuse and incest, in order to strengthen the overall systems-wide response provided to them.
The name One Voice Project is to honor the power of each individual voice and experience of an adult survivor. The name also honors the power of our collective voices and experiences of survivors, loved ones and professionals who serve this population – which are stronger together than any one person or organization could provide on our own.
Ways you can Participate in the One Voice Project:
If you are a Professional or Organization who serves Adult Survivors, you can help by:
1) Promoting the One Voice Project to adults who may have experienced sexual abuse in childhood, to see if they would like to take part in the project. You can download a flyer here.
2) Hosting in-person interviews or focus groups of those participating.
If you are an Adult Survivor who lives in Colorado, you are eligible to participate in the anonymous project, which involves two parts:
1) A questionnaire that will take approximately 15 minutes; and
2) An interview with research students in one of three ways:
a) meeting in-person, b) participating via online conference or phone, or c) being part of an in-person focus group. For any of these options, you are welcome to bring a friend.
Please note: In-person interviews will be available in the areas of Boulder, Metro Denver, and Colorado Springs. Survivors from Rural communities are encouraged to participate via online conference or phone, if this is comfortable for you. ALL voices are important!
