    I am a survivor of sexual abuse at the young innocent age of 5 until I was 17. I am 48. I speak publicly at colleges, inmates, events, all that I can to educate and bring awareness about this still silent epidemic! My voice is open to speak if needed. Looking forward to working with the Darkness to Light to educate further. My story was featured in Western Massachusettes Women’s Magazine. I will be on Jon Leiberman show April 28th. Jon was reporter/producer of America’s Most Wanted with John Walsh. I am working on passing Erin’s Law in Massachusetts to mandate a curriculum for pre-k to 5th graders be educate on sexual abuse in school. We need to educate the children the correct way not have the perpatrators educate their way which is teaching Keep silent, keep it a secret, don’t tell…Thank you
