“All Survivors Day is a call to action to all people to come together and help change the culture that surrounds sexual abuse and assault. By stepping into the light and telling our stories, we are hoping to motivate others to join us as we seek to prevent future cases of sexual abuse and show others what they can do to get involved in their own communities and institutions to ensure this never happens again.”
Tim Lennon, Board President, SNAP

Coming forward, Finding Support.


All Survivors Day is a national day to recognize the varied and widespread nature of sexual abuse, share the stories from survivors of sexual abuse, and call the public to action in helping to prevent future cases of sexual abuse.

All Survivors Day is led by organizations that have arisen from the scourge of sexual abuse, whether at home, in schools, at church, the military, on college campuses and sports teams. The groups are uniting to reduce the barriers survivors face when coming forward, finding support and holding perpetrators accountable.
