Sexual abuse and exploitation affect one in four women and one in six men in our country. But victims are not the only ones faced with the crisis of sexual abuse and exploitation. Family members, friends, caring adults, law enforcement officers, emergency response personnel, teachers, clergy, and everyday citizens may find themselves face-to-face with a victim of sexual violence. Sexual abuse and exploitation can quickly destroy families, schools, organizations, churches, businesses, and entire communities. Many of the crises we currently face in our culture stem from sexual abuse including, obesity, chronic health issues, illiteracy, pornography, prostitution, addiction, poverty, homelessness, mental illness, violent crimes, and suicide.
Together we can help reconnect victims with Hope and turn their broken into beautiful.
As a speaker, advocate, trainer, and counselor, I spend a lot of time with victims, listening to their stories, and offering hope and healing right where they are. I am a sexual abuse and exploitation survivor who openly and passionately shares the pain of my past to raise awareness, bring new perspectives about victims, train church and business leaders, and equip medical staff and law enforcement personnel to better serve victims.
Broken or Beautiful programs offer innovative teaching and new ways to help break the chains of sexual violence by raising awareness, impacting culture, and influencing change around this important topic. Every Broken or Beautiful program is strategically designed to reconnect people impacted by sexual abuse and exploitation with Hope.
