WHERE HOPE AND HEALING BEGIN
A SEXUAL ASSAULT RESOURCE CENTER
This short documentary presents a personal, critical perspective from survivors’ point of view juxtaposed with viewpoints of caretakers, mental health professionals, law enforcement, agencies, policy makers, family members and the community at large. Dialog at an emotional level from all perspectives connects the devastating ripple effects of sexual assault. Rape is prevalent yet predominately hidden in our culture. Conversations about this hideous crime are addressed directly, openly and honestly. This is a vital step in empowering victims and cultivating transformation.
