Overcoming extreme adversity is inarguably one of the most difficult experiences anyone can go through. Even more so, for people who do not have a strong support system who can help them in their journey. Cognizant of this, one extraordinary organization has created an avenue where people can safely heal from their trauma and move forward toward a better life: Rock Paper Scissors Foundation.
It is a movement that specializes in supporting those who have been physically, mentally, sexually, and emotionally abused and human trafficked. The remarkable institute has several programs that are rooted in the slogan, “We can’t do anything about the past, but we sure can do something about the future.”
Several things make the impressive social enterprise stand out. As it confidently shared, “What separates us from our competitors is we have an organic sense of providing community awareness, making a global impact, and unifying all walks of life. We also do not move within the box. We are okay with trying something new to customize each personal event program and opportunity to the real true authentic needs of our community and peers. We stand firm in being natural healers through transparency and truth, with freedom and no condemnation.”
Through its proven-and-tested programs, the venture has helped people from all walks of life. It caters to men, women, girls, and boys who have gone through all forms of abuse, human trafficking, and domestic violence as well as those who have experienced any mental health battle or challenge.
At the helm of Rock Paper Scissors is the incredible individual and founder Kristal Klear who is an entrepreneur, published author, and certified trauma coach. Utilizing her extensive experience and thorough knowledge in human trafficking, trauma care, sexual abuse, and child abuse, she sheds light on the dark practices and exploitation within various communities through education and awareness.
As a testament to her dedication to the advocacy, the inspiring woman has written Healing Beyond Sexual Misconduct, a curriculum focused on properly handling sexual misconduct from a leadership position in any environment.
Aside from that, she is an esteemed keynote speaker who shares her insights on numerous television and radio programs. In addition, Kristal Klear hosts a podcast where she openly shares her personal experience with abuse and encourages others to be resilient in their healing journey.
When asked what pushed her to create Rock Paper Scissors, the CEO profoundly responded, “What motivated us to build our brand is through our own personal healing journey not being able to find a community or support system that broke the stigma off of hard issues, and that gave others a safe place to unify character development and establish one’s voice of truth.”
Moving forward, Rock Paper Scissors Foundation intends to grow the movement and bring it to the national and global scale by making an impact through programming, current affairs, community activism, resources, and conferences.
Above all, the organization has shown an incredible commitment to its vision of providing a solid support system and a safe space for exploited individuals with its goal of passing a bill that safeguards, protects, and gives a voice to victims of abuse and human trafficking.
