Angela D. Wharton
Angela D. Wharton founded Phynyx Ministries, an organization providing a path to healing for women sexual assault survivors through love, support, advocacy, education and empowerment. Phynyx provides a safe space where women survivors can break their silence and receive the tools, support and resources necessary for their healing journey.
Wharton was inspired to start Phynyx Ministries while she was healing from rape. She shared her story before the Maryland General Assembly of surviving sexual assault at 14 and rape at gunpoint at age 24 in support of legislation to benefit survivors of sexual assault.
