We recognize, respect and honour the bravery of all survivors and stand alongside them. We want to create a space where survivors can bring their whole selves – no matter what.We inspire bravery. We embrace it. We are Embrave.”

Our name and identity embodies who we are, our values and what we do. We are brave, bold, fierce, confident and unafraid to face challenges head-on. Embrave is relentless in leading change. We amplify the voices of survivors. Embrave is here for you. All of you.”
