WHO WE ARE & WHAT WE DO 

Voices in Action is an independent, survivor-founded and led 501(c)3 nonprofit fighting for safety and gender equity in the entertainment industry and beyond. We do this by providing private and secure user-based portals for victims to document abuse and for users to receive optional alerts if others identify the same abuser. We also provide a uniquely holistic service of trauma-informed support along with educational and awareness services to empower and improve safety standards.

Our services include:

  • A private user portal for detailing, documenting, and time stamping incidents of abuse, harassment, violence, assault, misconduct, etc.
  • Optional alerts to individuals who name the same perpetrator as another;
  • Referrals for free, trauma-informed legal representation consultations;
  • Connecting victims of the same abuser under confidence and privilege of legal counsel;
  • Mentorship and guidance with next steps and local resources;
  • Courtroom, testimony, and statement advocacy;
  • Mental and physical support led by trauma-informed practitioners;
  • Education and awareness services and trainings to foster empowerment and increase safety;


HOW DID IT ALL BEGIN?

Voices in Action founder, Jessica Barth, was among the first wave of Silence Breakers who spoke out against Harvey Weinstein’s history of sexual abuse and misconduct in the entertainment industry, which helped make Tarana Burke’s #MeToo movement turn into the viral paradigm shift that we know today.

It was a shift that was long-overdue and welcomed at large by the public and workers in the industry. But time continued to on and many grew frustrated with nothing more than promises being made but no real change. So, Jessica got to work and, instead of waiting for change to be made for her, decided to try to change things herself.

Voices in Action was born.
