Survivor Speakers

Survivor Speakers

The Compass Center is launching a new project to give survivors a platform to share their story! If you felt silenced during your legal proceedings, if you feel that something you learned could help another survivor, or if you feel you have a silence to break, the Survivors Speak Oral History Project might be for you. Compass Center advocates will be conducting 1-2 hour interviews with interested survivors  who received services at Compass Center  in the hopes of creating an enduring archive of survivor testimony for educational purposes. Survivors will have complete control over how and with whom their interview is shared; possible audiences include Compass Center staff and advocates, the Orange County Domestic Violence Task Force, and the wider community via publication on the Compass Center website or newsletter. If you’re interested in participating, please contact the Court Advocacy and Community Response intern via email ( courtintern@compassctr.org ) or phone (919-968-4610) for more information.
