I think when we feel like this we need to do what you have done. We have to talk about it. It is so empowering to discover we can have a voice again, but yes, at first the risk seems so great. Your example shows what can be done. It doesn't matter if a solution doesn't appear at first; that too will come.
Nobody living can ever stop me
As I go walking my freedom highway.
Nobody living can make me turn back:
This land was made for you and me. (Woody Guthrie)
