GEMS’ March 2014 Newsletter

Wednesday, March 12th, 2014

Dear Friend, Winter has been inspiring and productive here at GEMS, even with all the snow! I recent ly conducted a two day intensive training with our amazing Youth Leadership Interns on honing their training and outreach skills and handling some of the specific challenges that come up when you’re training on an issue that you’ve had personal experience with. As survivors, our voices and experiences are critical in educating and raising awareness but it’s not about us just telling our ‘stories’, but about using solid training skills to communicate our diverse ideas, critical analysis and insight.

And it’s up to organizations and policy makers to provide both the professional development and the platform for survivors to grow as leaders.

Newsletter: Victim, Survivor, Leader

Wednesday, July 27th, 2011

Dear Friend,

Exciting things are happening this summer! First off, GEMS has premiered a new and entirely survivor-written Victim, Survivor, Leader training curriculum. We’ve been highlighting the great work that direct service providers can provide to victims of commercial sexual exploitation and domestic trafficking, and the trainings have been going really well. I feel incredibly proud to be co-facilitating a totally survivor-written curriculum about our Victim, Survivor, Leader model with two incredible survivor leaders.

Last month, we celebrated the achievements of GEMS members who are participating in our Educational Initiative program. It was such a moving night, and I’m so proud of all of our girls who are furthering their education. . . .
