Until we tell new and more complete stories about violence and its aftermath, we will never be able to transform our responses to it or to keep people safe and well.
With Ever After, we are telling those stories.
"Jail shouldn't be the norm."
"That amazed me... that it would take that long to identify my child by his name."
"Women do time differently."
"I probably would've wanted to know why."
"What would revenge do?"
Before Opt was suspected of a crime he didn't commit, he was a survivor of violence.
"I need to hear this."
"These so-called mirrors..."
"She was a woman of dignity and worth."
"No one ever asked us what we needed to feel safe now."
"I went outside to protect my brother but didn't know I was actually hurting another one."
"Everybody's story is possible."
