Me Too: A Jewish Response to Abuse

young woman holding sign that reads help

I have a name but too often I have been rendered nameless.
Me too.

I have a voice but too often my voice has not been heeded.
Me too.

I have a shape but too often my body has been leered at or made invisible.
Me too.

All these acts.
To make a person.
This person
Disappear.
And yet.
I have a name
And a voice
And a body.

Together, in the midst of the others, I make myself present and available for all survivors and our collective surviving.

Me too.
Me too.
And
Me too.
