JAMES VALVANO AND WE HAVE A FACE ORGANIZATION ARE TAKING A STAND WITH US!
WeHaveAFace.org is the first organization founded to increase international awareness of Huntington's disease through a cinematic form. Founded in March 2011, we merged with Deshalamar.org of New York. Clarice Miller and Deon Leftenant (founders of Deshalamar.org) have been the driving effort and support behind the success of our project.
Together, we have taken a multifaceted approach toward advocacy. In addition to the documentary, WeHaveAFace.org joined forces with
Melissa Biliardi's "Help 4 HD - The HD View" BlogTalkRadio show. This vital addition to the project injected a "voice" for Huntington's disease out to our community, and brought us a venue to discuss sensitive topics which were never discussed before.
The Huntington's Disease Project continued to morph as we offered the
international community additional components: Education - Resources - Information. We furthered our support by offering a free mobile application to the international community, and our "On the road...Help 4 HD" materials. We listened, and heard our fellow peers speak.
The community has always been the main focus of our drive and determination. Since the creation of WeHaveAFace.org in March 2011,
it was through the support, stories, and experiences of the JHD/HD community that our mission became a reality. In less than a year,
we were blessed as the international community began to understand our cause, and the urgency to reach out and make a difference.
It was affirmed that our mission aligned with so many within our community.
As individuals who are directly affected by Juvenile Huntington's disease and Huntington's disease,
we were able to create a movement never seen before. It was time to "step outside the box" and advocate for Huntington's disease through all means necessary.We are the community, and time is of the essence. A change was necessary, and the stagnancy which has existed within the Huntington's disease community for decades, had to be examined.
WeHaveAFace.org is an independent, educational project comprised of a team of individuals within the JHD/HD community.
Via the documentary, WeHaveAFace.org will facilitate the first venue by which international community members will be able to tell their stories: uncut - uncensored - untainted. Light must be shed on all aspects of Huntington's disease and brought to the forefront. It is time to face the
challenges within our own community.
"The Faces of Huntington's Disease: I am No Longer a Faceless Face" focuses on the personal stories of the international Huntington's disease community.
The film is the first of its kind, created solely by
individuals within the JHD/HD community, and a legacy for future generations.
If not now, when? If not you, who?

SANITY GURLZ IS TAKING A STAND WITH US!!!!!!!! THANK YOU!
CREATING CONFIDENCE HAS JOINED US
THE VOICES AND FACES PROJECT HAS JOINED US! THANK YOU!
The Voices and Faces Project is a Chicago-based non-profit organization created to bring the names, faces and stories of survivors of sexual violence and trafficking to the attention of the public.
The Voices and Faces Project seeks to change minds, hearts and public policies through the power of sexual violence survivor stories.
We seek to raise awareness of sexual violence as a human rights and public health issue. Through our outreach and speakers bureau, websites (voicesandfaces.org and counterquo.org), sexual violence survivor story archive, (the largest of its kind in the world, modeled after the Holocaust Survivor Archive at the National Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC), and a series of creative projects - including the country's first of its kind testimonial writing workshop for survivors of sexual violence, domestic violence and trafficking - The Voices and Faces Project seeks to change minds, hearts and public policies through the power of sexual violence survivor stories. We work to create safer communities by raising awareness of what rape and sexual violence cost all of us – and by connecting those who have survived it to key resources.
The Voices and Faces Project was founded in 2003 by writer and creative director Anne K. Ream. Ream’s vision is to place a human face on a devastating public health and human rights issue which impacts as many as one in five women and one in thirty-three men in the US. In launching The Voices and Faces Project, Ms. Ream, who is herself a survivor of rape, sought to create a "safe space" for other survivors to share their names,faces and stories, one in which a diverse community of women and men could testify to their experiences, knowing that such testimony would be used to change minds, hearts and public policies on rape and abuse. When the first 5 survivor stories and photos collected by our organization were included on our launch website (voicesandfaces.org)
we received over 2 millions hits within the first two months of the site launch, a reinforcement of how hungry survivors were to encounter the stories of others who had lived through rape.

Trish & VictimtoSurvivor.com is taking a stand with us.
VictimToSurvivor.com is a website that was the brainchild of Trish Jackson, designed and created by
Russell Petee as well as Lana Trombley helping to get the word out. Together they want to change the world one victim at a time.
This website allows victims of domestic violence an opportunity to share their story,
to realize that they’re not alone and that there are others out there that have experienced something very similar.
Through this website that we hope to create The VTS Foundation so that we raise awareness, educate, assist victims of domestic violence as well as build several beach houses so that victims and their family will have a safe haven to recoup and rebuild their lives.
The first house will be for woman and children and called Sandy’s Place,
named for a lady who tried to get out, but wasn’t able to get out in time, you can click here to read her story.
She touched our hearts with her battle for survival and we will not let her memory be forgotten,) As far as education, we want to take a very proactive stance by getting the word out to the public, actually going into the schools,
talking to, listening to and educating teens. We will also be contacting local law enforcement agencies to make them aware so that they will stay focused to the problem of domestic violence.
The VTS Foundation will be very visible and outspoken on this matter, through education and awareness,
we want to make it possible that people that are in a domestic violence situation know that they don’t have to be there,
that they do have a choice. Teach them how to be a survivor.
We want to let them know that they are not alone and that it’s OK to be a survivor. If you want to help us get there, then please click here.
