The Stitch

Why Do You Wear It?

There are an estimated 39 million adult survivors of child sexual abuse in the US alone.  Most will never tell a soul.

“The Stitch” symbolizes voice frequency.

By wearing it, you become a voice that can help move the issue of child sexual abuse from a taboo to a cause people love and support.

About Us

Speak your Silence is a nonprofit on a mission to conquer the stigma of child sexual abuse.

We were founded in late 2012 by Matt Pipkin, who was sexually abused by a family friend at age 6 and kept it secret for twenty years due to fear, shame, and guilt.

Matt’s life was finally changed a few years ago when he found his voice, his value, and support from his family and friends.

By wearing “The Stitch”, our voices join together to create a melody of hope + healing for current generations and future generations to come.

We provide free, in-person, one-on-one counseling for individuals personally affected by child sexual abuse anywhere in the US, regardless of their location.

Where Money Goes

100% of public donations and profits from Speak Your Silence products fund our counseling program.

Our people and overhead are funded entirely by members of The Loudspeaker. This exclusive membership-based group of private donors and corporate partners invest in us personally so we can hire the most talented and passionate people, have an office, and always have fresh coffee (inspiration) brewing.
