A new foundation called Face The Music Now has been launched to support sexual abuse survivors in the music industry.

Face The Music Now was founded by author Dorothy Carvello, who was also the first female A&R executive at Atlantic Records, and according to the site it aims to "highlight the reality of what has been going on for decades, demand accountability and change, and pave the way for survivors to tell their stories and reclaim their lives."

The site also states that the one of the "key goals" for the foundation is to "expose and stop the use of non-disclosure agreements that silence survivors and allow abusers to continue their predatory behavior."

Mixmag reports that Carvello said, "As a survivor myself, I have seen and experienced firsthand how sexual harassment and abuse shatters survivors psychologically, financially, and professionally."

"It's not a matter of money; it's about helping them put the pieces back together," Carvello added. "This is about the decades-old and widespread abuse of power in the music industry. We want to help survivors find their voices and take back some of what they have lost."
