Alison Fields (she/her) is an activist, advocate, and writer living in NYC. Her work focuses on supporting fellow trauma survivors as well as writing and speaking on topics spanning intersectionality, disrupting rape culture, mental health, and dismantling white supremacy. She is a creator, storyteller, leader, and trauma-informed facilitator in racial/social justice and healing spaces.
Alison is a survivor of domestic violence, rape + sexual assault, and child abuse. She believes that survivors are powerful and magical and most importantly that fields and programs that are created for survivors should be survivor-led, because our experiences and our voices matter. She believes it is critical that the public health field becomes trauma-informed and is eager to create change in this area in order for survivors to feel safe, seen, and supported — always.
