On October 2nd, 2008 the first issue of Rising Above Magazine was launched.  The purpose of Rising Above Magazine is to give victims and survivors an opportunity to share articles, poetry, testimonies, etc. with other victims and survivors.  Rising Above is a monthly Ezine which is available to download for free at http://stores.lulu.com/risingabove.

After realizing that there weren’t many magazines or Ezines out there specifically for survivors and victims of abuse, I decided to create Rising Above.  At Rising Above we believe that every voice deserves to be heard and every story deserves to be told.  From tips on healing to personal testimonies to poetry written by survivors to helpful resources, the RAM is filled with so much information that is useful and encouraging to all victims and survivors.  Currently the staff has 10 staff members on board.
