Paint Your Truth is on its 3rd year (I’m excited!). This year we are hosting Paint Your Truth at the Perkins Community Center on 155 Talbot Ave, Dorchester Center, MA from 2PM to 5PM. Paint Your Truth is a painting event for sexual assault survivors in the Massachusetts area. The origins of Paint Your Truth is from private conversations I had with Black women who confided in me about their past experiences with sexual assault in different stages in their lives. I’m talking about toddler, preteen, adolescence and adulthood. The perpetrators were different people from family members, teachers, coworkers, neighbors etc. I appreciated these ladies for having the courage to speak their truth and share their stories with me. These stories impacted me and I wanted more survivors to be able to express themselves, not necessarily in words, especially those who don't have the words. This is when the idea of art came to mind because words are interpreted by their definitions but an art piece is worth a thousand words and all of them are defined differently by the viewers and painter. In 2016 this is when Paint Your Truth first happened. It was a small, supportive and empowering event. All the attendees painted and interacted with each other. They had a great time eating, chatting and being carefree while painting their individual truths. Even City Councilor Andrea Campbell came to support us and painted as well. Then on I vowed if I could I would continue the empowering painting event that is Paint Your Truth.
