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.
