Hi, My name is Dawn L. Peek, as a "Thriving Survivor" I was #Touchedwaytoosoon! Being molested from the ages of 3-17, I am extremely passionate about helping victims move from behind the shadows of their pasts. I want to be the breathing, living, and walking example of how a woman can live a very rewarding life after sexual assault. Redefining how women perceive themselves is extremely important. I vow to live the remainder of my life being My Sister's Keeper.
My Sister's Keepers of Atlanta materialized in 2018 after noticing there wasn't a place for women like myself to go for support. Here's a good example; When you are faced with life's adversities often times there's a place to go for support and guidance to heal. When your are sick, you go to the doctor. When you need prayer, you go to a place of worship. When you abuse drugs, you attend Narcotics Anonymous (NA). When you abuse alcohol, you attend Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). When you are a sex offender, you are mandated to register as a sex offender for life and remain in the house on Halloween as to not re-offend. However; when you are victimized by sexual assault, there's no place to go except for dark places, i.e. depression, suicide, overeating, drug abuse and alcoholism just to name a few. So, My Sister's Keepers and HerStory were born. HerStory is a support group for female victims and survivors of sexual assault. Meetings are held online and at a physical location.
Our targeted demographic are those who’ve been marginalized by society and victimized by date rape, incest, molestation, rape and sex trafficking. We believe in a continued holistic post traumatic healing approach which include but are not limited to; individual sessions, support group meetings, crisis management, identity management and coping strategies in order to help move from behind the shadows of their pasts
