Hear Our Stories: Celebrating Black Victim-Survivors

2019

FORCE invited our community to come out for an evening of food, fellowship, reflection+discussion, and performances all in the name of celebrating black victim-survivors. The event featured food by Krystal Mack, and performances by Amorous Ebony, Uni Q Mical, and Ti Coleman. Over 80 people joined this celebratory evening. This event was co sponsored by MOMCares and Nzuri Malkia Birth Collective.

Visitors contributed to FORCE‚Äôs Love Letters for Survivors for Marquita Sutton, who was, at the time, incarcerated, serving a 10 year sentence for taking her abusive husband’s life, after years of physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual abuse. We are so happy to report that Marquita has since been released from prison. We celebrate her freedom!
