About

We believe in the healing power of stories

We believe adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse deserve a safe place to tell their stories where others listen with compassion and empathy. Storytelling creates an emotional bond between the tellers and the listeners; it creates a sense of community, of belonging. We believe that with validation and support of a community who truly listens to their stories, the survivors of childhood sexual trauma can begin to heal themselves, as well as others.

“Connecting with others through the painful story of my past has held incredible healing power for me.” – Shana Shippee

When met with openness and unconditional support, sharing a story of sexual abuse can be empowering, cathartic, and liberating for survivors. It can be a first step in breaking the cycle of distress.

#ImListening

Gravity Network, a 501c3 organization, provides a safe space for adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse to share their stories, connect with others, and find support. The online community, Gravity-Network.org, cultivates content and conversation to offer validation, support, and information.
The Childhood Abuse and Sexual Trauma (CAST) Survey is a first-of-its-kind research survey to quantify the physical, social, and emotional impacts of childhood sexual abuse in adult survivors. We want survivors to know they are not alone in what they experienced as children, as well as what they experience now as adults. Gravity-Network.org exists so that these individuals can share their story with a compassionate group of listeners, and ultimately, join the community of those who invite others to tell their stories.
