The O’Tahirah Foundation, Inc believes in the POWER of conversation. When survivors share their stories there is a transformative shift that happens between the person who is sharing their story and the listener. This helps to create the shattering of silence globally and is the beginning pathway to a survivor’s freedom.

“There is no greater agony than bearing an UNTOLD story inside of you” — Dr. Maya Angelou 1928-2014
