“You know, we only pay attention when it’s someone famous and it’s time for us to give a voice to the voiceless and be able to come up here and say, ‘Me too,'” stated march organizer Brenda Gutierrez.

Organizers say the campaign has given a voice to many survivors struggling silently, and now, some women are publicly sharing their stories.
