Description: 

We are changing the social stigma of child sexual assault, public policies, conducting current research of community needs, educating communities on prevention and education of child sexual assault and human trafficking, by hosting free conferences with local advocates; filming a documentary on survivors stories across the nation and how to heal from any trauma, not just child sexual assault and human trafficking, for people to thrive, rather than just surviving. It is time we learn to live, rather than merely exist.
