Al Jazeera America and Project Unbreakable: Tell us your survivor stories

Al Jazeera America and Project Unbreakable want to help you tell your survivor stories of how you were affected by campus sexual assault.

Two years ago, 19-year-old Grace Brown, then a freshman at the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan, listened as a friend opened up to her about her sexual assault.

"I've always been surrounded by survivors and people were constantly telling me their stories, even in high school," Brown said. "Even though I'd heard so many -- this wasn't the first, or the worst -- but it just got to me." 

By the next morning, she had come up with the idea for Project Unbreakable . 

It started as a photography series for school, but in the last two years, the popular Tumblr has featured more than 2,000 images of sexual assault survivors holding posters with quotes from their attackers. The aim, Brown said, is to help  increase awareness of the issues surrounding sexual assault and encourage the act of healing through art.

Today marks the two-year anniversary of the site, and Brown has much to be proud of. "It's just incredible to hear that people are seeing the images or are participating, and that they feel less alone, less isolated," she said.

As part of our ongoing series about sexual assault on college campusesAmerica Tonight has teamed up with Project Unbreakable to help tell your survivor stories. We want to know how you have been affected by campus sexual assault.

Share your stories with us online here, or send us you photos for use by Al Jazeera America by sending an email to projectunbreakable.aljazeera@gmail.com.

If you are submitting photos, please make sure the image is clear, the words are in quotations and easy to read, and there are no names on your poster.
