Support PAVE to Help More Survivors Become Thrivers!
(Trigger Warning: Kidnap & Rape)
Carla Westlund is shattering the silence as she recounts the night she was kidnapped and raped by a fake Uber driver and her courageous path she traveled toward hope, healing and happiness with Promoting Awareness | Victim Empowerment (PAVE) by her side. Carla’s story made national headlines as the perpetrator was a serial offender who sexually assaulted at least 7 women while posing as a fake Uber driver.
In the wake of the recent news story of University of South Carolina student Samantha Josephson who was murdered by a man who she thought was her Uber driver, Carla once again shattered the silence and spoke with CNN and other national news outlets about PAVE’s Ride Hailing Safety Campaign, CASA, CHECK. ASK. SHARE. AWARE which Carla helped to establish. Click here to learn more.

Part of Carla’s journey to healing was participating in one of the many PAVE Festival of Healing events offered throughout the country. The event brings together holistic wellness practitioners for regional healing summits that feature trauma-informed yoga, mindfulness and music therapy. Participants experience presentations on a range of mental health and wellness topics such as meditation, Tai Chi/Qigong and other healing arts.
