On March 27, 2021, 7 courageous women took the Amplify stage to have their voices heard to create ripples of change for women impacted by sexual assault and trafficking.
Helping Amplify to create those ripples is this incredible gift given to Amplify by Ana Pincus, Anna Andersen and DOC LAND Films, who captured this momentous occasion on film so we could continue to expand the reach of these voices.
The Journey tells the story of three trafficked and sexual assault survivors who were part of the first group of women to go through the ninety-day Amplify Voices Program. The film follows these courageous women as they take steps to heal, find sisterhood, and learn to give voice to their trauma in a series of powerful and inspiring stage talks.
Many people experience being silenced, misunderstood or oppressed. Feelings of isolation, shame or fear of judgment often result. Living in this disconnected space holds people back from living up to their true potential in life.
At Amplify Voices, we support people in transforming these disenabling feelings into empowerment and confidence to move through adverse experiences while using their voice as an instrument of change.
“What I have learned is that vulnerability gives you strength and that my story doesn’t own me anymore. I own it. And that’s an amazing feeling.”
Three steps toward transformation:
We create safe Speaker Circles: virtual groups of 7 participants who work together for 30 days to discover their voices and develop compelling messages focused on the triumph they discovered living through adverse experiences.
We connect people within their Circles to allow participants to be seen and heard by others, as they practice powerfully speaking their truth out loud to others.
We amplify and share these messages to the greater community to increase the compassion and understanding of others.
“I fully and wholeheartedly believe that this is what changing the world looks like.”

As Amplify expands its reach, each speaker stepping forward becomes a ripple in our
growing tidal wave of voices spreading compelling and positive messages in our world.
