Thank you for being here, below are some of the ways you can make Fort grow bigger and help abuse survivors worldwide.
Abuse is a deeply personal and sensitive issue, but the internet allows us to talk of it anonymously, without disclosing our identities. You don't have to be a professional writer - what matters is voicing your perspective, so that other people can learn from you.
What was it like, to press charges against your ex? What did it feel like when your father passed away? How do you handle raising children while having DID? Imagine how many people are facing the same issues and would love to hear your first-hand experience. Share your thoughts, feelings, helpful tips you've discovered, your joys and struggles - that's how our library came to be and keeps growing and helping abuse survivors world-wide.
We honor those who have died through abuse by sharing their stories on our Memorial Wall. Select a person to write about below.
Just click on the photo you like: the next page will give you a link to news articles about them, and a field to type up a summary of who they were and how they died. One or two paragraphs is all we need to add their anniversary to our calendar.
Send us pics of anything abuse-related that you have created: drawings, paintings, doodles, sculptures, embroidery, photo collages, etc.
You can upload your artwork through the form on the left. Please write something about your art: what does this image represent for you, when did you create it, how does it make you feel to look at it, etc. Most image formats are accepted, but please refrain from sending images containing nudity or violence. Your email won't be published.
Obligatory legalese explaining that if you don't want your content published on Fort, you shouldn't send it :)
