Our Voice fundraiser spotlights sexual assault survivor Chanel Miller


The Asheville nonprofit Our Voice holds its biggest fundraiser of the year with an online event Thursday, March 11, featuring Chanel Miller, the survivor of a 2015 attack at Stanford University.

Miller, who faced her assailant in court, read a victim impact statement that deeply resonated with listeners and those who read it later.

Tickets to hear Miller cost $25, with proceeds benefitting Our Voice. Get tickets here. Buy raffle tickets to win prizes via the event here. The event will kick off with original music by Asheville singer-songwriter Jane Kramer.

The Break the Silence Speaker Series is Our VOICE’s largest fundraising event of the year. Each year, the series highlights the voice of a national leader, activist or survivor who has worked to improve systems in responding to and ending sexual assault or human trafficking in our communities.
