The Phoenix Fellowship peer group was created as a safe haven for survivors of sexual violence on the campus of Florida A&M University.  Survivors remain anonymous to the outside world, but are welcomed into a group where personal thoughts, fears and dreams are shared in a supportive environment. Phoenix members are welcomed to take part in advocacy work done with SPEAK!, but are welcome to take their time on their road to well being, mentally, physically and spiritually. Phoenix meets at least once a month and members are encouraged to say what they are thinking and feeling at all times.

If you would like to join the Phoenix Fellowship peer group, please contact us online.
