Portraits of Courage

We’re proud to present Portraits of Courage, an ongoing exhibit which honors survivors from the Oklahoma City metro area who have bravely risen above their adversity on their journey to healing. Each featured portrait has been handpicked by the survivor and is accompanied by their message of hope. Their resilience and courage are an inspiration for all of us.

If you or someone you know would like to participate in this project, please complete the form below. If you would like to participate by sharing your words, but not having your photo shared, you have that option as well. With your consent, images and words of encouragement may be posted in our building, as well as on our website and/or our social media pages. Portrait sessions for this project are free of charge.

We welcome participation from all genders, ages, and cultural identities—we want survivors to see someone that looks like they do and know that they, too, can not only survive, but thrive. We know that often children, pets, and other loved ones survived the abuse or assaults as well, and we invite you to include them in your portrait if you would like.

If you have any questions, please contact [email protected] for more information.
