Submit a Story! 

MOCSA StoryShare is a new storytelling project for anyone who has been inspired or impacted by MOCSA’s mission. Selected stories will be housed on our website and shared on social media beginning in April as part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) and will continue throughout the year. Our SAAM theme is "My Moment. Our Momentum." By acknowledging the individual experiences that inspire growth and propel the anti-violence movement, we can build a community where survivors are believed and supported, perpetrators are held accountable, and everyone is safer. 

Storytellers are invited share personal moments in which they were moved to action, saw or experienced culture change, or changed an idea or belief about sexual violence. See a list of prompts for  ideas and inspiration.

Accepted formats include audio, video, writing, visual art, graphics, or photography. Stories/content will be shared on various media outlets including, but not limited to website, email, and social media platforms.

Accepted story formats:

  • Audio or video = 3 minutes max
  • Written = 600 words max
  • Visual art, graphics, or photography
Participation Guidelines:
