Desirae and Deondra Brown, creators of the Foundation for Surviving Abuse, have a mission to use the experience of survivors of sexual abuse as a tool to educate the general public and state legislators of the unjust laws regarding statutes of limitation for these crimes. The negative affects these laws have on individuals who have had so much stolen from them are extensive and long-lasting. They are working together with many state and national abuse organizations to remove the time limit on justice and healing for survivors everywhere, while using their voices to protect the most innocent from further harm.
For more information on what they are doing and to join the cause please visit SurvivingAbuse.org.
