Our Mission: Giving victims a legal voice.

Our Vision is a world where every individual is valued equally and
treated with respect and dignity.

 

We hear the stories time and time again – victims are fearful to come forward,
they are not believed, or worse, blamed when they do,
and they cannot remember specific details due to overwhelming trauma.

The fact is, most abuse goes unreported.
Most reported cases are dismissed due to
a lack of admissible evidence.

This is unacceptable and VictimsVoice is changing this.
