Together, we can end abuse globally.
"I encourage you to stand with us as we walk this movement forward...one survivor at a time.”
Jessica Yaffa has used her story as a beacon of hope and light in assisting both men and women to move through issues of shame, guilt, and hopelessness as a result of abuse. Ms. Yaffa speaks across the country to large organizations, non- profit service providers, schools, military bases, treatment centers, and at community forums. She uses multiple platforms to share her testimony of triumph, resiliency, and restoration as a means of eliminating stigma, providing education, and changing the way we address issues surrounding relationship violence and sexual assault.
“If you would have told me several years ago that I would experience daily gratitude for all I endured, and actually rejoice in my testimony, I would have called you crazy. As a teenage girl, turned young wife/young mother, and survivor of abuse, it was all I could do to wake up and face each day without giving up. To now have the opportunity to reach thousands of young men and women by sharing my lessons, creating safe spaces for tough conversations, affirming the value and worth we each have, and ultimately changing the way we show-up in relationships is nothing short of a miracle.
It is my life’s purpose to support those who are struggling, while eliminate stigma, shining a light on how to move out of trauma and into freedom, and changing the way our communities respond to the epidemic of domestic violence and relationship abuse. I applaud each of you for your willingness to explore this tough issue and encourage you to stand with us as we walk this movement forward…one survivor at a time.”

Jessica has a powerful personal story which is generously shared with us and it brought the subject to life. Jessica has great passion around this subject, and was able to present the importance and urgency in understanding, identifying and helping those who have experienced domestic violence begin to heal. Thanks so much Jessica, this presentation was invaluable to me and many others!"
