Our See the Triumph campaign celebrated its 8th birthday on New Year's Day. When Allison Crowe and I co-founded this campaign on January 1st, 2013, we had no idea how it would grow so much in the years ahead. But working on this campaign has been one of the most rewarding aspects of my career, as it's given us the opportunity to connect with survivors through our social media channels and research. And, in fact, the Triumph Over Abuse book grew out of that campaign, and you'll find the quotes of many survivors who participated in our See the Triumph-related research throughout the book.
To celebrate See the Triumph's birthday, we are doing a book giveaway contest for a signed copy of Triumph Over Abuse. To enter, click this link to head over to the image above on Facebook, and then like, comment, or publicly share the image to be entered. You've got til the end of the day on Thursday this week (January 7th) to enter!

The See the Triumph campaign launched on New Year's Day of 2013, which means today is officially our 8th birthday!
I believe strongly in supporting local organizations that do the hard work every day to support victims and survivors of abuse. I've been honored to be part of my own community's (Greensboro/Guilford County, North Carolina) efforts to build and sustain a Family Justice Center, which is known as a "one-stop shop" support victims and survivors of abuse. In our community, the Guilford County Family Justice Center operates two locations in the county and serves victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse, and elder abuse. The first location opened in Greensboro in 2015, followed by the second location in High Point in 2018.
Family Justice Centers are based on a national model that woks to bring together many different types of professionals and community organizations in a way that makes it as easy as possible for victims and survivors to get the support they need. I've seen firsthand how this model has transformed our community's efforts to prevent and respond to interpersonal violence.
Because resources like Family Justice Centers are so important to me, I've committed to donating 20% of my author royalties from sales of Triumph Over Abuse to the Guilford County Family Justice Center.
If you're interested in learning more about the Guilford County Family Justice Center and how victim service resources help start survivors on the path toward recovery from abuse, be sure to come to our virtual book launch event on January 15th at noon EST. Catherine Johnson, the Center's Director, will be one of the featured speakers at the event. To learn more, check out the Facebook event page or register for free via Eventbrite!

It’ll still be a couple weeks before this book is officially released, but I was so excited to receive my author copies yesterday!
This book was one of the easiest but also hardest things I’ve ever written. It was easy because I knew exactly what I wanted to say to support survivors in the process of recovering from past abuse. It was hard because I’m still learning to share my own story as a survivor in a way that feels safe and comfortable to me.
I definitely have moments where I wish I didn’t have those past experiences, but I’m grateful for the chance to bring my personal experiences into the work I’m so passionate about.
I'll share more updates in the coming weeks as the book is officially released. Stay tuned!
I'm excited to share that my virtual book launch for Triumph Over Abuse has been scheduled for Friday, January 15th, 2021, 12-1 p.m. EST. via Zoom.
Also at the launch, we'll celebrate the 8-year anniversary of the See the Triumph campaign and explore ways survivors can intentionally move forward in their healing journey in 2021!
This event will feature book giveaways, other prizes, and a 20% discount on the book for all who attend.
