From Catherine Dwyer, Program Manager, DIRECTIONS! Rape Crisis Support & Advocacy Services:

My thanks to Amy for helping make our Take Back the Night event a success.  Amy delivered a speech from her heart.  She shared her story of incest and her journey of healing,  allowing the audience to feel her pain and glimpse the experience of ‘brokenness’ that survivors of rape must go through as they begin the healing process.  She allowed herself to be open and vulnerable enough to share from the deepest part of her soul.  Her courage to speak out touched the audience in ways that encouraged them to examine their attitudes and beliefs about rape.  It helped to motivate them toward ending victim blaming and finding the courage within themselves to speak out against rape and sexual assault. Thanks again to Amy and to survivors everywhere for your courage and inspiration.”
