WYR Welcomes Blogger Samantha McCoy!

WYR Welcomes Blogger Samantha McCoy!

I am delighted to welcome Samantha McCoy to the WYR team!

Samantha’s story is one that is I am learning is increasingly common: she was assaulted by a police officer. As this receives more coverage in the media, we also start to receive more stories posted to WYR.

Samantha told me, “I literally thought I was one of the only ones who has experienced an assault from an officer. I did meet one survivor who I became great friends with who had a similar experience. I am saddened and shocked to hear that it happens more frequently but I do not doubt that they 100% get away with it.”

Samantha will be blogging about her healing journey and helping others to know that they are not alone. By shedding light on this issue, we take away its power.

When You’re Ready welcomes guest bloggers who would like to share their experiences related to sexual violence – not just their stories but their experiences in the healing journey. Please contact me via the “contact” form on the site and let me know you’ve got something to say!



Lauren Reid is the founder of When You're Ready.org, a three time survivor of rape who built this community to let other survivors of sexual violence know that they're not alone. When you're ready, I'll be here.
