April 14th, 2018, families, friends, children, and other community partners gathered together at Gahagan Park in Summerville, SC. We enjoyed awesome activities in the Football field area, which included jump castles, face painting, games, food, drinks, and a lot of laughter. It definitely reminded most of us of the field day you would have in school and even family gatherings. There was even a spade game!
I AM VOICES INC. was founded by Megan Manigault who is a survivor of sexual abuse.The main focus of this event was to provide a fun, uplifting, and empowering experience for families, children and the community where they can celebrate the fact that they are survivors and not victims. The mission for this event was to give voice to those they may have lost their own.
With the success of this event, I AM VOICES INC. has a lot in the works! There are other smaller events planned throughout the year. In the fall, the organization will have different workshops/seminars for members in the community. These workshops/seminars will forward the organization’s missions to educate the community, raise awareness, and build skills to influence the world.
I Am VOICES INC wants to thank everyone who came out to support this event. A special Thank You goes to all of the volunteers, entertainers, and vendors. Without you, this wouldn’t have possible!
