Northeastern SpeakOut

Run by Northeastern SARC



We want to provide a safe and supportive space for survivors to share their stories and raise awareness around the pervasiveness of sexual violence at Northeastern University.

**Community Guidelines

You can share any part of your story that you wish: trauma, healing, growth, connection after trauma, etc.
All stories will remain anonymous and confidential.
Stories may be submitted by students, alumni, faculty, or staff members associated with Northeastern University.
In order to foster a secure space for everyone, we ask that you omit any graphic details from your story as it may be triggering for others.
In order to ensure anonymity for the story, survivor, and situation:

  • If you wish, we will include the names of organizations, clubs, sports teams, and other affiliations.

  • If you wish to name your perpetrator(s), we will post only their first initial.

  • You may not include your perpetrator’s initials, position/title, etc. AND their organization or affiliation.

  • If our moderating team is concerned that certain elements of a post may compromise anonymity, we reserve the right to remove any identifiable information (about the survivor and/or perpetrator) in order to preserve confidentiality.

Harassment of any kind, and towards anyone, will not be tolerated. We will take steps to prevent anyone who does not abide by this from following or interacting with this Instagram account.
This page is for all survivors.
