DANCING IS MY VOICE
Working to End Sexual Violence and Help Survivors Find Hope for Healing

WHY DANCE?

 As a rape survivor, I understand what it is like to hate my body, feel betrayed by my body, feel trapped in my body.  The reason that we dance at our events is because dance, like other forms of movement such as yoga, is extremely empowering and healing.  Movement combined with music gives a "feel good feeling" since music even on its own can be energizing and uplifting,    Dancing gives us an outlet for creative expression and inspiration!

Rapist Database: Strength in Numbers

Dancing is My Voice manages a database of user-reported names of known rapists, in an effort to start the first centralized Rapist Database,    Click here  to learn more about how the database works on a practical level.

According to research by Jim Hopper Ph. D., repeat college rapists commit over 90% of the rapes and a large percentage of these admit to commiting thee rapes over multiple years of college.  With 99% of rapists never seeing a day of jail time and 98% of rapists being repeat offenders, there may be a way to find strength in numbers.  

Survivors rarely find justice through the courts but may have more courage to speak up if they were matched with other victims of the same perpetrators.

Our hope is that it does not take a national media story for survivors to find out about other survivors who were assaulted by the same rapist. 

By creating this database, our hope is to increase the conviction rate of rapist with known mutliple offenses while at the same time sparing survivors the stress of going through trial, which can be a traumatic experience in and of it itself.

Reporting a rape is a very personal choice and is not the right choice for everyone. All information collected in the database will be kept confidential, but users may select the option of receiving a notice if another person enters the name of the same rapist in our database.

 Dancing is My Voice considers the safety and confidentiality of survivors to be of the highest importance.

Dancing is My Voice is an annual Zumbathon® Charity Event during National Hispanic Heritage Month which attempts to gather enough people on the National Mall in Washington, DC to break the Guinness Book of World Records for largest Zumba® class while raising awareness of sexual violence and pointing survivors and those who love them toward RAINN, the nation's  largest anti-sexual violence organization, for the next step in their healing journey.





Current figures suggest that 1 in 6 women and 1 in 33 men will become a victim of sexual assault in his or her lifetime. I think about the men, women and children I care about — and I’m driven to take action. RAINN has helped me realize that there’s something I can do — something we can all do, to affect change.

Our team has a goal of raising $50,000 for RAINN, the nation's largest anti-sexual violence organization.
Dancing is My Voice will donate net proceeds from this event to RAINN.
