Our Story

HUSH No More is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in 2019  to provide a platform for Survivors to share their experience with the “HUSH Topics” and to receive support from other Survivors and Victim Advocates. As well as provide training that will lead to awareness and prevention in our community. HUSH Topics are those topics that individuals, families, and organizations have a hard time discussing, such as sexual assault, domestic violence, child sexual abuse, sex trafficking, sexual harassment, etc. Statistics show that these topics happen in 1 out of 6 households and the numbers are growing. Our vision is to create a world where Survivors feel empowered to HUSH No More, and share their stories with others to create knowledge that leads to safer communities.
