Today we want to thank all of you that continue to support our mission of
supporting those that have been victims of childhood abuse!
EmpowerSurvivors was created in 2014 by Stillwater, MN resident Elizabeth Sullivan.
What started out as a peer support group meeting in a local library quickly morphed into a 501c3 nonprofit that is now able to reach survivors worldwide!
Since 2014 we have visited and spoken with thousands of survivors of childhood sexual abuse, 250 prisoners of the Lino Lake Prison system, local colleges, Universities, local Rotary Clubs, businesses leaders, numerous podcasts, nonprofit organizations, MN House and Senate committees, survivor groups, survivor families, and Take Back The Night Events, and more!!!
We could not do this work without all of you.
Thank you to all of the members that bravely walk this healing journey with us, all of you who have " Liked" our page, our donors, fellow businesses, and past and present board members.
We truly appreciate each and every one of you!!!

EmpowerSurvivors program, Conversations with Elizabeth
Previously recorded on 4/24/2023
A very big thank you to Stacy Coulter for being our guest on the EmpowerSurvivors program, Conversations with Elizabeth!
Join us as we discuss being a mother of a survivor with the author of the book,
"Blindfolds and Pitchforks: Don't Be a Child Molester's Flying Monkey" and the mother of a sexually abused child, Stacy Coulter.
As a parent, finding out that one of our children is the victim of childhood sexual abuse is horrifying. Something we may think will never happen to one of our own children. Join us for this Zoom program as Stacy brings us through her story of being a mother of a child who disclosed childhood sexual abuse at the hands of their stepfather.
Find Stacy's book on Amazon:
