Child Sexual Abuse Survivor, Advocate to speak at Taylor UniversityPublished: Nov 14, 2011
Nicole Bromley, a survivor of child sexual abuse and vocal advocate for the rights of children and sexual abuse victims, will be speaking at Taylor University’s Rediger Chapel/Auditorium at 10:00 a.m., Wednesday, Nov. 16.
Bromley is the founder and director of OneVOICE (Victory Over Impossible CircumstancEs) Enterprises and is an internationally-recognized speaker and author.
OneVOICE is an organization whose goal is to raise awareness of sexual abuse and educate the public on how to prevent abuse. They provide speakers with real-life stories, communicate a message of hope and healing, initiate dialogue, and offer support to churches, organizations and people.
“In 2010 the World Health Organization published a fact sheet that said 1 in 5 girls and 1 in 10 boys suffer some type of childhood sexual abuse,” said Bob Neideck, director of Taylor University’s counseling center. “Nicole Bromley is willing to use her own story of abuse and ongoing healing to bring this issue that is often kept silent out into the open. She has a style that our students can connect to, and she speaks honestly about the impact of her abuse as well as the healing that is happening in her life. It is my hope that listening to Nicole lets students on our campus know they're not alone and encourages those with abuse in their story to seek help and support.”
Bromley serves on the Advisory Board for Gracehaven, a non-profit organization which houses girls who have been victims of commercials sexual exploitation and trafficking. She is also a member of RAINN (Rape, Abuse, Incest National Network) Speaker Bureau and a member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association Health and Safety Speakers Bureau.
Bromley’s presentation is open to the public.
