Shattering the silence of Black and Brown men and boys who have been sexually abused. Nurturing the healing with the use of the arts.
The Triggered Project utilizes art as a method to express, and liberate the trauma stories of many men whose stories have not been told and deserve to be discovered and appreciated.
The Triggered Project works to nurture healing for black and brown men which we hope provide options to redefine masculinity and end the use to toxic ways of defining manhood.
Triggered Project is also a social impact and awareness campaign to build skills in the clinical community and to bring to light the experiences of black and brown male trauma survivors who are often victim to implicit bias descriptions.
The Triggered Project is committed to educating youth, and adults about the Importance of their mental wellness.
