Just as you heard in our video, one of the most common aftermaths of childhood sexual abuse is abusive relationships into adulthood. Birth to six years of age is a period of significant and rapid brain development. Developing with the reality of childhood sexual abuse impacts adult relationships with ourselves and others with issues such as boundaries and sexuality. Violations of boundaries, relationships, and sexuality is NOT normal.
Our mission with ANBU is to provide healing and empowerment through holistic support, resources, and advocacy on behalf of Tamil people who have been impacted by childhood sexual abuse. We work with your presence. If you desire to speak about your past because you believe it is what you need then we will provide that space but our focus is really on your present. Unfortunately a realistic present for most survivors of childhood sexual abuse is intimate partner violence.
This is why ANBU has partnered with OCASI to raise awareness on intimate partner violence. We will be sharing resources and tools to build your capacity and understanding of intimate partner violence. Let’s navigate ways we can support one another and bridge the gap between generations so that we can openly talk, connect and heal.
Bring an Aunty, and join us for a day of celebrating the resilience and courage of the women in our community.
